Abstract

The prognosis of unresectable advanced gastric cancer is extremely poor. We tried a neoadjuvant chemotherapy in locally advanced unresectable stomach cancer diagnosed by initial explo-laparotomy. After chemotherapy with the FADE regimen (5-fluorouracil + adriamycin + cisplatin + etoposide), the patient was diagnosed clinically as a complete response state on re-staging with radiological gastrointestinal study, fibergastroscopy and computerized tomography. During the second-look operation, the advanced cancer was completely resected and the pathological diagnosis was early gastric cancer (EGC) type IIc, stage II (T1M2Mo).
