Abstract

A 65-year-old male patient with squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus had a transhiatal esophagectomy after a prophylactic tube jejunostomy. The tube was removed 3 weeks after surgery. Ten months later, a painless 2-cm abdominal mass was noted at the previous jejunostomy site. Subsequent segmental resection of the jejunum disclosed metastatic squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus. It is possible that tumor seeding may develop at the jejunostomy site after transhiatal esophagectomy for esophageal carcinoma.
