Abstract

A 59-year-old woman was referred to our hospital for a close examination and treatment of an advanced gastric carcinoma. A physical examination and CT scan showed that the right cervical and axillar lymph nodes were swelling, and a histopathological examination of the axillar lymph node revealed metastatic growth of the gastric carcinoma (Stage IV). Then, we started S-1/CDDP combination chemotherapy. S-1 (80 mg/m2/day) was orally administered for 3 weeks followed by 2 weeks of rest, and CDDP (60 mg/m2) was administered by drip on day 8. Since the distant metastases were greatly reduced after 6 courses of combination therapy, a distal gastrectomy with lymph nodes dissection (D2) was performed. Histopathological examination of the resected tissues revealed no residual cancer cells, suggesting a pathologically complete response. The clinical course after the operation went well without any complications, and the patient is alive with no evidence of recurrence 1 year after surgery. S-1/CDDP combination chemotherapy appears to be one of the effective treatments for advanced gastric carcinoma.
