Five months prior to the present admission a 47-year-old man presented with melena, dull mid-epigastric pressure and a 35-pound weight loss over a 3-month period. He underwent esophagogastroscopy with biopsy at that time which showed mucinous adenocarcinoma on a background of Barrett’s esophagitis at the esophagogastric junction (see esophagogastrectomy and transhiatal esophagectomy.)

CT scan showed numerous lymph nodes anterior to the esophagus, the largest measuring 1.4 cm. In addition, there was a 1x3 cm mass in the gastrohepatic ligament and a large collection of lymph nodes just inferior to the stomach. There was minimal adenopathy in the porta hepatis. There was 10 cm of diffuse thickening from mid-esophagus down the gastroesophageal (GE) junction where there was focal gastric wall thickening and a suggestion of a lobular mass projecting into the lumen. Also a large hypodense lesion in the right lobe of the liver was noted and read as a probable hemangioma.
