A 75-year-old male who with type 3 gastric cardia cancer with multiple liver metastases was initially treated with S-1 in July of 2005. After 4 courses of the treatment, the liver metastases became undetectable on abdominal CT scan, with reduction in size of the primary tumor of the stomach. After 7 months of S-1 treatment, however, the progression of the primary lesion was endoscopically detected, and irinotecan was administered, demonstrating primary tumor regression. When re-growth of the primary tumor was observed, 3 courses of paclitaxel treatment showed little effect and was replaced by docetaxel treatment for 5 months, which had a grade 3 adverse effect. The next 10 courses of 5-FU combined with methotrexate were applied for one year until the primary tumor showed enlargement. Then 12 courses of CDDP with S-1 were administered until now, and the size of the primary carcinoma is under control. The patient is being followed on an outpatient basis without any surgical treatment, while the liver metastases have not relapsed on abdominal imaging.
