Neuroendocrine carcinoma of esophagus represents less than 2% of cases of cancer of the esophagus. This presentation is extremely unusual, as this type of carcinoma typically presents with greater frequency in bronchopulmonary regions. The symptoms are usually associated with esophageal obstruction and include odynophagia, dysphagia and weight loss and are not usually associated with Carcinoid syndrome. The diagnosis requires one or more of the following positive immunohistochemical markers: Chromogranin A, synaptophysin or CD56 positive, as well as the presence of EMA and PANCK positive. We report the case of a male patient with diagnosis of neuroendocrine tumor of esophagus.
