Abstract

In a review of 196 cases of malignant neoplasma of the esophagus and stomach, endoscopically guided brush cytology at the initial examination appreciably improved diagnostic accuracy of esophageal lesions. However, cytology may have been superfluous when routinely applied to the evaluation of lesions intrinsic to the stomach. In these cases, when biopsy is negative while radiography or endoscopic appearance is that of malignancy, then brush cytology is recommended as an adjunct to repeated endoscopy.
