The patient suffering from getting something lodged was admitted to our hospital in October 2008. He was diagnosed as hypopharyngeal cancer (cT2N1 MO, cStage in) and cervical esophageal cancer (cT2N1 MO, cStage IE). Firstly he was administered 5-FU, DXR and CDDP as induction chemotherapy. The response evaluation was PR according to RECIST criteria. After the induction chemotherapy, he was treated with chemoradiotherapy (64.8 Gy/54fr, concurrent with weekly DOC 10mg/m2). Since cervical lymph node metastases were still remaining with complete response of the primary sites, we performed a neck lymph node dissection as salvage surgery in July 2009. There has been no evidence of recurrence after the salvage surgery. Source
