Abstract

The patient was a 70-year-old male with advanced cancers of stomach and rectum and multiple metastatic hepatic tumors. No resectability was detected. The origin of metastatic hepatic tumors was unknown, so the combination of S-1 and CPT-11 as a treatment regimen was selected. S-1, 80 mg/m2, was administered on 14 consecutive days followed by a 14-day rest period, and CPT-11, 100 mg/m2, was administered on day 1 and day 15. One cycle was defined as 4 weeks, and cycles were repeated. CR was achieved as long as metastatic hepatic tumors after completion of 5 cycles. When we encounter a case of simultaneous double cancers with metastatic sites which has no respectability, generally speaking, it is difficult to determine the strategy for chemotherapy. This case suggests that the combination of S-1 and CPT-11 may be an effective regimen for the treatment of simultaneous advanced cancers of stomach and rectum with multiple hepatic metastases.
