Abstract: A 66 year-old male underwent a distal gastrectomy with D2 dissection in April 2003. Pathological findings showed a well-differentiated carcinoma with a depth of m, n2, stage II. Six months later, a computed tomography revealed multiple lymph node swellings in the para-aortic lesion ; we judged this to be a recurrence of the gastric cancer. As treatment, paclitaxel was administered weekly on days 1, 8, and 15, in combination with doxifluridine for 5 days per week, on a 28-day cycle. Following three courses of chemotherapy, the lymph nodes had almost disappeared. This therapy was continued until January 2007. Because of the appearance of a Virchow lymph node, S-1+ cisplatin was administered. Following administration of the altered chemotherapy regime, a computed tomography displayed a significant reduction in Virchow lymph node swelling. Four years and ten months following the initiation of chemotherapy, the patient displayed jaundice. A computed tomography revealed lymph node swelling in the hepato-duodenal region. Following bile duct drainage, he received four cycles of paclitaxel and doxifluridine therapy. The patient then received S-1 monotherapy for 5 months. He died in February 2010, 6 years and 3 months after the recurrence in the stomach cancer.
