A case of primary adenocarcinoma of the colon in a segment used to reconstruct after an oesophageal resection is reported. The original lesion was a relatively advanced adenocarcinoma of the gastro-oesophageal junction. An ACPS ‘C’ colon carcinoma was diagnosed 12 years later. A curative resection was achieved.
The literature is reviewed in regard to late complications in colonic interpositions, including primary carcinomas.
