A 74 year-old man underwent subtotal gastrectomy for advanced gastric cancer in 2000. The histological type of the cancer was signet-ring cell carcinoma, and the clinical stage was stage II (T2, N1, M0). In June 2008 the patient was referred to our hospital complaining of dysphagia Esophageal endoscopy revealed a circular stenosis with covered with normal mucosa between the lower esophagus and the esophago-gastric junction. Histologically, samples obtained by endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) revealed signet-ring cell carcinoma Our experience suggests that EUS-FNA was useful for the histological diagnosis of recurrence of gastric cancer.
