An 83-year-old man commuting to our hospital with postoperative ascending colon cancer was pointed out an increase of CA19-9. CT scan revealed an intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma in the left lobe. In May 2007, an operation was performed. We recognized a lymph node swelling in the hepatoduodenal ligament. Pathlogically, it was moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma. Therefore, the operation did only the cholecystectomy. Gemcitabine was administered once a week for 3 weeks followed by a week rest. It was administered for about 20 months and the evaluation during the period was PR or SD. Afterwards, the tumor had increased gradually. Gemcitabine was changed to S-1. Then, S-1 was changed to gemcitabine again because the enlargement of the tumor and the rise of tumor markers were observed. Consequently, tumor markers decreased. Now, the patient is under an outpatient care maintaining ADL. Source
