          Abstract

          A case of achalasia associated with squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus is presented. Microscopic examination of the resected esophagus demonstrated abundant nerve fibers but absent ganglion cells throughout the tumor-involved segment. This finding is believed to be the cause of achalasia in this patient.
