抄録

The prognosis of esophageal cancer with distant metastasis is dismal. We report a 70year-old man with esophageal cancer and multiple lung and lymph node metastases. Complete response was achieved following definitive chemoradiotherapy. Twenty-four months after the initial chemoradiotherapy, local recurrence was detected but there was no evidence of distant metastasis. Therefore, the patient underwent salvage esophagectomy. The surgery was well tolerated without any postoperative complications. The patient is still alive 48 months after the salvage surgery. Our experience suggests that salvage esophagectomy is an important component of multimodal therapy for the recurrence of esophageal cancer.
