ABSTRACT
Ninety patients of esophageal cancer treated with radiation since November 1985 to June 1990 at the Deprtment of Therapeutic Radiology, Chonnam University Hospital, were analysed retrospectively regarding survival. Seventy five patients (94.9%) revealed squamous cell carcinoma in its histologic type, and most ofpatients were in advanced stage with 25 patients (27.8%) of T2 and 64 patients (71.1%) of T3 Minimum follow up period was 12 months and median was 5 months. Overall actuarial 2 year survival rate was 11.6%. Two year survival rates according to the parameters such as treatment aim, T stage, site, length, radiation dose and response were compared and resulted that survival by tumor length only had statistically significant impact on survival of esophageal carcinoma.
