ESCC is the initial presentation of cancer in up to 20% of patients with this syndrome. Patients with lung cancer, hematological malignancies, and cancer of unknown primary are especially likely to present with symptoms and signs of ESCC (50). About 60% of vertebral metastases producing ESCC occur in the thoracic spine—25% in the lumbar spine and the remainder in the cervical spine.
