Even though the quality of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) treatment in our region is relatively good, detection of early asymptomatic stages of ESCC is inadequate. In most of the cases, at the time of esophagoscopy, the disease is already in an advanced stage. Endoscopic treatment is preferred in situations where the risk of surgical treatment is higher than the possible risk of disease dissemination. In the case of superficial ESCC, the main route of dissemination is lymphatic spreading. Active screening is the method of choice in identification of risk population. We present a case report of a patient with early diagnosis of ESCC treated with multiband mucosectomy, which appears as easy to use compared to classical cap endoscopic mucosal resection.
