Abstract
Recent advances in endoscopic instruments, including narrow-band imaging (NBI) and magnification endoscopy, allowed dramatic increase in the early diagnosis of hypopharyngeal cancers. In addition, endoscopic mucosal resection or endoscopic submucosal dissection has recently been used for the treatment of hypopharyngeal cancer at an early stage, especially in Japan. However, to date, there is no published report in Korea. A 68-year-old man was admitted for preoperative evaluation and treatment for known esophageal cancer initially diagnosed at a local clinic. During the evaluation, magnifying endoscopy combined with the NBI system revealed a concurrent hypopharyngeal cancer not detected by initial conventional endoscopy. In this case report, we describe for the first time in Korea a case of early stage hypopharyngeal carcinoma that was successfully treated by endoscopic submucosal dissection with a review of literature.
