Abstract

Small cell carcinoma is most frequently described as occurring in the bronchial tree. Extrapulmonary small cell carcinoma is a very rare disease and it has been reported in the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, pancreas, uterus, salivary gland and prostate. Primary esophageal small cell carcinoma with gastric metastasis and without regional lymph node involvement is very rare. We have experienced a case of primary esophageal small cell carcinoma with gastric metastasis and without regional lymph node involvement. The patient was treated with chemotherapy and this patient is alive at 40 months after the treatment.
