Case 1: A 76-year-old man presented with advanced gastric cancer in the esophagogastric junction with para-aortic lymph node metastasis (HER2 positive CT4N1M1 [LYM], cStage IV). After 3 courses of chemotherapy consisting of S-1+docetaxel + trastuzumab were completed, we performed surgery. No cancer cells were revealed during histopathological examination, indicating pathological complete response (pCR). At present, 12 months after treatment, the patient is well, with no signs of recurrence. Case 2: A 74-year-old man presented with advanced gastric cancer with peritoneal metastasis (cT4b [Panc] N1M1 [P], cStage IV).
