Basaloid squamous carcinoma of the esophagus is very rare. We report two cases of basaloid squamous carcinoma of the esophagus. Both tumors histologically consisted of solid cell nests with intervening fibromyxoid stroma. In some tumor nests were comprised of pseudoglandular structures containing myxoid matrix, and displayed focal immunoreactivity for laminin. Thoracic esophagectomy with lymph node dissection was followed by intrathoracic esophagogastrostomy in both patients. The patients had uneventful postoperative courses. Regular periodic follow-up showed no evidence of recurrence or metastasis in the 22-month postoperative period.
