Abstract

The most common sites of metastasis for esophageal cancers include the liver, lungs, and bones. We report a rare case of esophageal adenocarcinoma with metastasis to the subcutaneous perianal region as well as to the small bowel. Physicians should consider the possibility of metastasis in a patient with esophageal adenocarcinoma even after the onset of remission. It is essential to examine these patients and maintain a high index of suspicion for possible metastases. Early recognition helps in the accurate staging of the disease and enables the initiation of life-prolonging therapy and achieving meaningful palliation.

Keywords: Unusual sites, Metastases, Esophageal adenocarcinoma.
