We present an unusual case of a 41-year-old male patient with a large lymphangioma of the esophagus. Endoscopy revealed that the structure measured 60 × 10 mm in the mucosa and the submucosa and had a heterogenous echo pattern. The esophageal mass was successfully resected by endoscopic piecemeal mucosal resection.

This study reports on animal experiments regarding the safety of endoscopic esophageal mucosal resection with a ligating device (EEMRL), as well as the amount of mucosa which can be removed by this technique, the depth of resection and the feasibility of piecemeal resection.
Three experiments were performed in six mongrel dogs under general anesthesia.
When EEMRL was done without submucosal injection of saline, resection reached the muscular layer and caused esophageal perforation.

Lymphangioma of the esophagus is an extremely rare submucosal benign tumor. Most esophageal lymphangiomas reported in the literature are smaller than 2 cm in diameter and can be removed using endoscopy. We report a case of lymphangioma of the esophagus with 2 huge lesions (10×2.

Advances in diagnostic technology have led to increased detection of early esophageal cancer, which is suitable for endoscopic treatment. We performed endoscopic esophageal mucosal resection of such cancer and dysplasia using the endoscopic esophageal mucosal resection tube and evaluated the clinical benefit of this technique.
Twenty-nine patients with esophageal mucosal cancer (27 cases with 33 lesions) or dysplasia (2 cases with 2 lesions) diagnosed between September 1992 and March 1998 were assessed endoscopically for the depth and extent of invasion by double staining with toluidine blue and iodine.
