Carcinoma of the esophagus is a quite frequent pathology without uniform distribution in different geographical areas. The most frequent histological types are the squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma. The etiopatogenesis is still uncertain. Symptomatology is not clear in the initial stage and is dominated by ingravescent dysphagia. The treatment varies with the stages of illness and the physical condition of the patient. Personal experience in ten cases of carcinoma of the esophagus is reported and the importance of prevention based on the knowledge of risk factors, of experimental cancerogenesis and genetical mutations is underlined.
