We have reported a case of endoscopically treated lipoma of the cervical esophagus. The patient was referred to our hospital with a chief complaint of dysphagia and underwent an esophagectomy through right thoracotomy, followed by esophagogastrostomy for superficial esophageal cancer 31/2 months before. However, this benign lesion was not revealed by preoperative check-up. He again complained of dysphagia after esophagectomy and lipoma of the cervical esophagus was confirmed.
