Figure 3. (a) Extrinsic prominence of esophageal wall above anastomotic stoma was seen in gastroscopy image (b) The thickness of esophageal wall was 2 mm in endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and with clear 5-layer structure. An oval heterogeneous low level echo mass with an area of 45 mm × 32 mm was found outside the esophageal wall. Elastography found the texture was harder than esophageal wall. The mass oppressed the esophageal wall and the anastomotic stoma locally. EUS guided fi ne needle aspiration was applied to the lymph nodes and tumor metastasis is confi rmed by pathologic histology
