Abstract

Benign tumors of the esophagus are rare lesions. Leiomyomata are the most common benign tumors of the esophagus and usually present with a single lesion. Coexistence of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and leiomyoma are extremely rare. In this article, we present a 44-year-old male case who was admitted with weight loss and dysphagia with normal physical examination and laboratory findings, however, diagnosed with the coexistence of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and leiomyoma, based on the histopathological examination.
