Abstract

The authors describe a case of lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma (LELC) of the esophagus occurring in a 77-year-old man. To date, 13 cases have been described in the literature, all in natives of Japan. Histological features, immunohistochemical findings and differential diagnosis are discussed. In our case epithelial neoplastic cells were completely negative for the EBV genome.
