Core Tip The occurrence of esophageal neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) is rare. The clinical data included in the previous prognostic models were limited and imaging data were lacking. Our results demonstrate that adjuvant chemotherapy is an independent prognostic factor of overall survival and progression-free survival. In addition, the N stage and degree of enhancement were prognostic factors of overall survival for patients with esophageal NEC. Furthermore, adjuvant chemotherapy was significantly associated with degree of enhancement, while degree of enhancement significantly correlated with esophageal wall thickness.
