Abstract

Adenocarcinoma of the esophagocardiac junction is a condition difficult to define. It is often necessary to differentiate between esophagocardiac junctional adenocarcinoma and carcinoma in Barrett's esophagus. We herein report a case of an 83-year-old Japanese man with adenocarcinoma in situ arising from ectopic submucosal cardiac glands in short-segment Barrett's epithelium, associated with squamous cell carcinoma. Despite the visualization of a nodule in short-segment Barrett's epithelium, we diagnosed the present case as one of esophagocardiac junctional cancer arising from ectopic submucosal cardiac glands, using Alcian-blue staining.
