Abstract: Myoepithelial carcinoma (MC) is a rare malignant neoplasm that mainly occurs in the salivary gland. (1) It was first reported by Stromeyer et al (2) in 1975. MC has been identified in several locations, including the parotid gland, minor salivary glands (especially the palate), respiratory tract, maxillary sinus, larynx, lungs, and penile. The most common site is the parotid gland. Patients often do not exhibit obvious symptoms in the early stage of an oesophageal tumour. As the tumour grows, patients present with different symptoms that are dependent on tumour size and location, including progressive dysphagia, chest pain, and hoarseness. Since the tumor is extremely rare and there is a lack of knowledge of aggressiveness of the condition, available treatment is uncertain. According to previous reports, surgery remains the best treatment option for MC at other sites. Here, we report a case of MC of the oesophagus in a 47-year-old male that was treated with trans hiatal esophagectomy.
