A 69-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with complaints of loss of appetite, fatigue and dysphasia. Upper gastroscopy revealed advanced gastric cancer. Abdominal CT suggested liver metastases. At first we thought the liver metastases has been completely resected, but we found multiple liver metastases unexpectedly. So only total gastric resection and liver biopsy were performed. The pathological diagnosis was metastatic carcinoma. Paclitaxel (PTX) and S-1 combination chemotherapy was started after operation and was continued for 42 courses. A CT scan showed a complete response, and he has been well without tumor re-growth ever since. The combination of PTX and S-1 not only may be an effective regimen for gastric cancer with liver metastases, but also can be used without side effects for a long time. Source
