Abstract

The authors report a case of a composite tumor, carcinoid and adenocarcinoma, of the esophagus, which was diagnosed at autopsy in a 78-year-old man. At autopsy, a large necrotic and hemorrhagic mass was detected at the lower third of the esophagus. Histological examination of autopsy specimens revealed a composite tumor, carcinoid and papillary adenocarcinoma of the esophagus: the former was more evident at the periphery of the tumor and exhibited intracytoplasmic granular positivity with the Grimelius method; the latter was more centrally located, smaller in size (1 cm in diameter), and consisted of papillary fronds with cuboidal-columnar cells which were Grimelius negative, PAS positive and CEA positive (Ortho-histoset).
