抄録

A 64-year-old male presented with discomfort in the chest. His endoscopic examination and CT scan showed esophageal cancer with multiple liver metastases. A total of ten courses of systemic chemotherapy by 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) (800 mg for five days) and cisplatin (CDDP) (80 mg/day on the first day of the week for four weeks) were performed, and liver and lymph node metastases disappeared. The primary lesion was the only site detected positive by PET scan. After a concurrent chemoradiation therapy, salvage endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) was performed on the remainder of the primary site and the patient gained a complete response (CR). We report this case because, although the mean survival time of advanced esophageal cancer is less than one year, this patient responded to chemotherapy and gained complete response by salvage EMR. This patient has had no recurrence for four years since his initial diagnosis.
