Abstract

Verrucous cancer of the oesophagus is a rare disease. Verrucous means wart‐like in appearance and was first reported in the oral cavity in 1948 in the Journal of Surgery and within the oesophagus in 1967. A PubMed search from the last 20 years reveals only 15 English case reports or small series about oesophageal verrucous cancer, the largest a review of 11 patients from a single institution.3 We present two cases outlining the diagnosis and treatment of verrucous cancer of the oesophagus.
