Signet ring carcinoma of the esophagogastric junction in a Nigerian man
International Journal of Medicine and Medical Sciences
Globally, the majority of cancers of the esophagogastric junction are adenocarcinomas. Of the four histological subtypes, the signet ring carcinomas are rare. There is a dearth of reports of this relatively rare histological finding from patients in sub-Saharan Africa. We present such a case in 69 year old Nigerian with advanced malignant disease.
