As cervical metastases in esophagogastric junction cancer are extremely rare, the authors herein report a case. A 63-year-old woman presented with dysphagia since 6 months. Diagnostic endoscopy showed that the tumor was located at the esophagogastric junction and histopathological diagnosis of adenocarcinoma was offered. A subtotal gastrectomy was performed. Histopathological diagnosis was moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma, invading upto the serosa with metastases to perigastric nodes. The patient received chemotherapy of cisplatin and fluorouracil for one cycle and oral capecitabine for two cycles. Two years later, the patient presented with vaginal bleeding and magnetic resonance imaging of pelvis revealed a tumor of the cervix. Histopathological impression of the tumor was metastatic cervical adenocarcinoma and immunohistochemistry showed the tumor was cytokeratin, villin, and CDX2 were positive and cytokeratin 20, CA125, and CA199 were negative. The immunohistochemical profile was the same as that of primary.
