Intraepithelial carcinoma of the oesophagus: endoscopic morphology.
The endoscopic detection of 18 "early" hypopharyngo-oesophageal carcinomas, has allowed us to perform a detailed study of the morphological correlation between endoscopy and histology (in 10 cases). We have thus defined 4 different endoscopic types of intraepithelial carcinomas; their morphology, mapping and evolution are greatly variable. In high risk groups (heavy smoking and alcohol consumption, ENt-cancer) the multicentricity of intraepithelial carcinomas (80%) entails a thorough endoscopic screening of the upper digestive tract (mouth, pharynx, oesophagus) and of the lower respiratory tract (larynx, trachea and bronchi).
