Fifty consecutive patients with verified squamous cell carcinoma in the oesophagus or adenocarcinoma had mediastinal metastases. One of 21 patients scopy. Seven of 29 patients with squamous cell carcinoma and mediastinal metastases. One of 21 patients with adenocarcinoma had this finding. It is concluded that patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the oesophagus should be mediastinoscopied and that it is also a worthwhile method in patients with adenocarcinoma.
