Abstract

We report a case where a chronic non-healing esophageal ulcer which developed following a course of endoscopic sclerotherapy proved to be an esophageal carcinoma. In view of 2 similar previous reports we discuss the possibility that sclerotherapy may act as a carcinogen, and suggest that all such non-healing esophageal ulcers should be biopsied.
