We report a rare case of a second primary brain tumor following esophageal cancer. A 56-year old Japanese man underwent a transhiatal esophagectomy for esophageal carcinoma. Two years after the operation, signs of increased intracranial hypertension including headache, nausea and left limb ataxia were observed. The tumor was totally removed by a suboccipital craniectomy, and the histological diagnosis was hemangioblastoma. The post- operative course was uneventful and the patient is still alive without any signs of recurrence. It is important to make a precise strategy for the second primary tumor.
