Özet

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the esophagus usually occurs between the 4th and 6th decades of life. Esophageal SCC in children is an extremely rare entity - only a few pediatric and adolescent patients have been reported. Herein we present a 17-year-old male progressive dysphagia patient that developed SCC of the esophagus, as well as a literature review of esophageal SCC in pediatric and adolescent patients.
