Abstract A 73-year-old male with renal pelvic cancer had received left nephroureterectomy and radical prostatectomy for left renal pelvic and prostatic cancer in April,2003. Three months after the operation,a paraaortic lymph node swelling was found in his follow up CT study,and the lymph node metastasis of renal pelvic cancer was suspected. Although we recommended him to receive chemotherapy,he refused our proposal. The lymph node had grown slowly for 5 years. Then he suffered from gastric cancer in June,2008 and at the gastric surgery needle biopsy was performed for the enlarged lymph node,which was found to be metastasis of urothelial cancer. The lymph node had been reduced in size dramatically by TS-1 administration as adjuvant therapy for gastric cancer.
