Abstract

The diagnostic criteria for intraepithelial cancer of the esophagus are different between Western countries and Japan. In Western countries only the malignant tumor invading the lamina propria mucosae seems to be regarded as cancer [1]. We report a case of esophageal cancer invading the submucosal layer diagnosed by typical upper gastrointestinal and endoscopic findings. It was treated by radical surgery.
