Case 1 was a 75-year-old man. An about 15 mm-sized polypoid lesion was seen at the lower esophagus, and it was diagnosed as Group V and papillary adenocarcinoma by biopsy from the lesion. Esophago-gastrectomy was performed. Well-differentiated adenocarcinoma arising from the Barrett's epithelium was recognized, and the depth of invasion was mm. Case 2 was a 39-year-old man. An about 10 mm submucosal-like lesion was seen near the esophago-gastric junction, and the results of biopsy were Group IV and papillary adenocarcinoma. Esophago-gastrectomy was performed. The histological findings showed a 10×7 mm 0-II a type well-differentiated adenocarcinoma against the background of Barrett's epithelium, and the depth of invasion was mm. In the patient of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) the esophago-gastric junction needs to be observed carefully at the time of endoscopy.
