    A case of adenoid cystic carcinoma of the oesophagus occurring in a patient who had previously been treated for craniopharyngioma is presented. This is the thirteenth reported case of adenoid cystic carcinoma of the oesophagus and the first in association with craniopharyngioma. The previously described cases of oesophageal adenoid cystic carcinoma are critically reviewed, and it is suggested that this tumour is in general highly malignant and may not be so rare as is generally thought.
