Secondary esophageal carcinoma usually originates from a primary site in either the lung or breast. Only one case of metastatic esophageal cancer with a radiologic evidence that it was originated from the rectal cancer had been reported. We report an unusual case of a 80-year-old man with secondary esophageal carcinoma originated from the rectal cancer. It was diagnosed by histopathologic confirmation using immunohistochemical staining including CK20 and CK7 by comparing the histopathologic findings of surgical specimen of rectal cancer and endoscopic biopsy tissue from the esophagus. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of secondary esophageal cancer arising from rectum in Korea. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2004;29:193⁣198)
