Rakesh Kumar Gupta, Amitabh Kumar Upadhyay, Nidhi Gupta, Vijay Jagad, Munish Mahajan, Pankaj Goyal


Primary small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma oesophagus is a very rare tumour, treated with radiotherapy and chemotherapy. A 55-year-old female presented with complaint of dysphagia, investigated and diagnosed as small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma oesophagus. She was treated with radiotherapy 45Gy/25#/5 weeks +10Gy/5#/1 week (boost) by 3D CRT technique and six cycles of chemotherapy with Inj.Etoposide 100 mg/m2 D1-D3 and Inj.Cisplatin 75 mg/m2 D1, Q3 weekly. On follow-up investigations, there was no evidence of local or metastatic disease. She is still disease free after 17 months of diagnosis.349
