Published on: 2018-06-09

Abstract

This case report describes a 60-year-old male with a collision carcinoma of the oesophago-gastric junction. Collision carcinoma (CC) is the synchronous occurrence of tumours of different histological type arising in the same organ without histological admixture. CC’s are rare clinical entities, especially at the oesophago-gastric junction. The CC in this case report was composed of moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma and poorly differentiated neuroendocrine carcinoma.
