A 77-year-old woman with advanced squamous cell carcinoma of cervical esophagus underwent a chemoradiotherapy because of its marked stenosis. An ultrathin endoscope did not pass the stenotic site. Re-insertion of the ultrathin endoscope through a guidewire was performed under fluoroscopic guidance. The endoscope passed the stenotic lesion and an advanced gastric cancer was found in the gastric body. 3D-CT was performed to illustrate the tumor location. Gastric distention was obtained by using the esophageal feeding tube. These techniques were very useful as preoperative examination for the patient with severe stenotic esophageal cancer.
