Abstract

A 60-year-old male, chronic alcoholic and smoker with decompensated cirrhosis was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma lower-third esophagus with multiple liver metastasis. While on palliative chemotherapy, the patient presented with a lesion at the tip of the nose. Excision of the lesion was performed suspecting mucormycosis. Histopathological examination revealed a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma esophagus, similar to the initial disease. The nasal lesion recurred in 2 months, which was palliated with external radiotherapy given to the nasal lesion as well as the primary. The aim of this article is to present this rare case and review literature related to metastatic carcinoma of the esophagus with focus on nasal metastasis.
