Abstract

We report a case of advanced scirrhous gastric cancer treated by operation and chemotherapy for over four years. The patient was a 54-year-old female who had suffered from gastric cancer with esophageal invasion. She underwent total gastrectomy with D2 dissection. Operative findings revealed peritoneal dissemination, and it resulted in non-curative resection. After surgery, combination chemotherapy with low-dose CDDP administered intraperitoneally and S-1, combination chemotherapy with paclitaxel and 5-FU, and then combination chemotherapy with docetaxel and S-1 were sequentially performed. She also underwent palliative surgery for intestinal obstruction resulting from carcinomatous peritonitis. She achieved long survival with good quality of life (QOL) by multidisciplinary therapy of chemotherapy and surgical operation.
