Abstract

Inflammatory fibroid polyp (IFP) appears most often in the stomach. We herein report an extremely rare case of esophageal IFP resected using laparoscopy endoscopy cooperative surgery (LECS). A 73-year-old man with dysphagia underwent esophagogastroduodenoscopy. A 50-mm semi-pedunculated submucosal tumor was observed in the esophagogastric junction. Endoscopic ultrasonography showed a homogeneous, hypoechoic, and well-vascularized tumor in the second and third layers of the stomach, but endoscopic ultrasonography-guided fine-needle aspiration failed to establish a definite diagnosis. Since he was suffering from dysphagia, LECS was performed. The resected specimen proved that the tumor was an IFP originating from the esophagus.
