Abstract

A 54-year-old male. He was admitted to our hospital with epigastric pain. Gastrointestinal fiberscope examination revealed gastric cancer. A CT scan showed regional and para-aortic lymph node (LN) swelling and multiple hepatic metastasis in the left hepatic lobe. The serum CEA level was 100.6 ng/dl. He was administered 4 courses of CDDP (100 mg (day 8 i.v.)) plus TS-1 (120 mg/day day 1-21 p.o.). After the chemotherapy, CT showed a reduction of liver metastasis and disappearance of the LN swelling. The serum CEA levels were normalized. Distal gastrectomy, partial hepatectomy, and microwave coagulation therapy were performed. After operation, he was administered 4 courses of CDDP/TS-1 additionally. Surgery may be one of therapeutic option for AGC with liver metastasis that has responded to chemotherapy, as in the present case.
