PEREA GUERRERO, Humberto; FRISANCHO VELARDE, Oscar  y  PALOMINO PORTILLA, Américo. Primary adenoid cystic carcinoma of esophagus. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.1, pp.50-55. ISSN 1022-5129.

We presented the case of a man of 86 years with 6 months of progressive dysphagia, weight loss and edema of lower limbs. He had both severe microcític anemia and hypoalbuminemia. The contrasted x-ray showed the esophagus with irregular edges that compromised their cervical and distal portions. In the computerized axial tomography cervical adenopathies, bilateral pleural effusion and pronouncing esophagic thickening were evident. In endoscopy dispersed elevated lesions were observed from the underlying area of the cricopharinx, some with nodular and tumor like aspect, that distributed throughout the esophagus until an area of stenosis (32 cm of dental arches); the estenosis was tapestried with an irregular and easy bleeding mucosa. The histological study revealed adenoid cystic carcinoma of esophagus, with positive inmunocytochemical to cytokeratin. We showed the clinical-pathological findings and images of this case and we reviewed reports of this rare entity.
