 An 87-year-old female patient with advanced gastric carcinoma type 2 and lymph node metastasis was treated by TS-1 chemotherapy. One course consisted of TS-1 (80mg/day) administered for 28 days followed by 14 days rest. After one course, endoscopic examination revealed complete disappearance of the primary tumor with cancer cells detected by endoscopic biopsy. CT-scan showed that the metastasis to the lymph node had disappeared. The primary and metastatic lesions were regarded to have responded completely. 23 courses of chemotherapy were undergone. The patient has survived for 3 years. The TS-1 chemotherapy is considered effective for carcinoma of the stomach with lymph node metastasis.
