Esophageal endosonography. A: Image of superficial cancer of gastric cardia (arrows). B: T1 tumor with an intact outer hypoechoic layer. C: Cancer invading muscularis propria. The outer hyperechoic layer is discontinuous and this tumor is thus stage T2. D: Tumor invading beyond the serosa; it is thus stage T3. Enlarged nodes were also present.

Some appear polypoid, and imaging suggests a fibrovascular polyp. A hypopharyngeal liposarcoma grew submucosally into the esophagus (85). A rare malignant fibrous histiocytoma presents as a soft tissue polyp. A carcinosarcoma is uncommon in the esophagus. Histologically, these tumors show elements of both squamous cell carcinoma and sarcoma. Histogenesis is believed to involve metaplasia of some carcinomatous cells toward mesenchymal differentiation. Only rarely is a carcinosarcoma a result of simultaneous adjacent tumor development from both epithelial and mesenchymal tissue, identified by distinct immunoreactive and genetic clonalities in the two components.

A: A diffuse infiltrating, ulcerating tumor (arrows) was believed to have been induced by cyclosporin. ) B: Recurrent lymphoma presenting as multiple nodules (arrows). 32 ADVANCED IMAGING OF THE ABDOMEN coma is generally made only by the pathologist and even then often with difficulty.
