Primary adenocarcinoma in the esophageal gastric graft is a rare complication diagnosed in patients with long-term survival. Most data concerning the diagnosis and treatment of patients with metachronic cancer in esophageal grafts is derived from Japan and South Korea. The diagnosis of cancer in esophageal gastric grafts in the European countries is rare.
The study presented a case of a 66-year old male patient who, 30 months after an esophageal squamous cell cancer resection, was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the esophageal gastric graft. Despite control follow-up after the esophagectomy, cancer in the esophageal graft was detected during the stage that prevented performing radical surgery. The study presented the recommended diagnostic procedures and treatment options for esophageal gastric graft cancer, as well as review of available literature data
