Summary: A poorly differentiated squamous cell oesophageal carcinoma was diagnosed in a patient after an 11 month history of difficulty in swallowing. The condition was inoperable according to clinical and X-ray contrast examinations. Radiation therapy with three courses of chemotherapy was carried out, but no amelioration was obtained. Ukrain therapy (course of 46 ampoules) was undertaken; this changed the situation entirely: all the subjective problems disappeared and no residual cancer was seen on the X-rays. Complete remission is seen nearly four years after Ukrain therapy.
