Two cases of esophageal small cell carcinoma were reported on for the first time in 1952. There have been only a few published series on the patients with esophageal small cell carcinoma, and only 19 cases have been reported in Korea. As in the case of small cell carcinoma of the lung, the esophageal small cell carcinoma is known to show rapid progression and early metastasis. Yet much remains to be uncovered about the clinical features, optimal treatment and natural history of this disease. We report here on a case of primary esophageal small cell carcinoma with intraperitoneal multiple lymph node metastasis. The size of the tumor was markedly decreased by combination chemotherapy.
