Core Tip

Core Tip: Cases of esophageal neuroendocrine tumors combined with moderately differentiated gastric cardia adenocarcinoma are very rare. Pathology is the gold standard for diagnosis. Endoscopy and additional surgical resection proved to be successful in our case. Early detection and early treatment are both of great significance to the life and health of patients. Considering the successful resection of this case, we provide this case report to serve as a clinical reference.
