Esophageal carcinosarcoma is a rare malignant neoplasm that is composed of both carcinomatous and sarcomatous components. A 78-year-old man with esophageal carcinosarcoma presented with dysphagia, and was treated by endoscopic resection. Although surgery is the standard treatment for esophageal carcinosarcoma, endoscopic resection is an excellent alternative when the tumor is superficial and has no metastasis.
