A case of simultaneous carcinomas of the lower thoracic esophagus and the oropharynx in a 62-year-old man is reported. Reconstruction was successfully performed using a one-stage operation consisting of pharyngolaryngoesophagectomy followed by a combination of gastric pull-up and microvascular jejunal transfer procedures. The postoperative course was uneventful except for regurgitation of food, which persisted for 1 month.
