We herein report two cases of early esophageal adenocarcinoma derived from non-Barrett's columnar epithelium. Both patients, a 65-year-old woman and 60-year-old man, had elevated lesions on white-light imaging. Magnifying endoscopy revealed slightly irregular surface and vessel patterns, and both patients were successfully treated with endoscopic submucosal dissection. Histopathologically, both lesions comprised of well-differentiated gastric mucin phenotype adenocarcinoma. One lesion was
