We present the case of a 69-year-old man who was diagnosed with ascending colon cancer. Preoperative CT revealed 2 advanced esophageal cancers, both at T4; thus, a diagnosis of esophageal cancer(Ut-Ce, cT4b[Tr]N2M0, Stage ⅣA/Mt, cT4b[Lt-Br]N2M0, Stage ⅣA)was made. The patient received chemotherapy(DTX/CDDP/5-FU), and as the second-line treatment, he received chemoradiotherapy(40 Gy with DTX/CDDP/5-FU). We performed transthoracoabdominal esophagectomy, laryngeal preservation with tracheal resection, 3-field lymph node dissection, posterior mediastinal gastric tube reconstruction, mediastinal tracheostomy, and pectoralis major myocutaneous flap filling. He had an anterior chest wall subcutaneous abscess without respiratory complications. Pathological examination indicated a complete response. Two months after the surgery for esophageal cancer, radical surgery was performed for the colon cancer. Fifty-five months after esophagus cancer surgery, no recurrence was observed.
