Core Tip We report a follow-up of a 47-year-old male patient with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma in this study. In addition to the conventional examination, a novel workflow was performed to detect circulating tumor cells (CTCs). We evaluated the relationship between CTC characteristics and other tests. The serum tumor markers were normal and thus did not appear to reflect changes in the disease, whereas the number of CTCs fluctuated with the disease progression and treatment and coincided with imaging studies performed during the follow-up. This case highlights CTCs as a useful diagnostic tool with potential applications during treatment.
