A 68-year-old man who had Borrmann type 4 gastric cancer with multiple liver metastases was admitted to our hospital on October 20, 1998. He was considered nonresectable and placed on neoadjuvant chemotherapy consisting of low-dose CDDP and 5-FU. After 9 weeks of administration, the liver metastases had disappeared on abdominal computed tomography, but the primary lesion had progressed. On May 12, 1999, a total gastrectomy with a partial resection of the transverse colon and resectional biopsy of a white nodule of the liver were performed. This was a non-curative operation because of the peritoneal dissemination. A histopathological examination of the liver nodule revealed that the cancer cells had disappeared. The patient had an uneventful postoperative course and 4 weeks of chemotherapy were added. He remains alive with no symptoms or re-growth of the liver metastatic tumor 4 months after the surgery.
