Abstract

Esophageal squamous carcinomas induce regional immune suppression in the domain of the tumor while the global immune system remains intact. We report a patient with a squamous esophageal carcinoma, who was discovered at esophagectomy to have paraesophageal lymph node metastases from a prostatic adenocarcinoma. No other sites of metastatic disease were identified. This supports the concept that regional immune suppression by esophageal squamous cancers facilitates growth of metastases in the local lymph nodes.
