A 66-year-old patient, who had advanced esophageal cancer with lymph node metastasis, was treated by neoadjuvant chemo-radiotherapy, followed by curative surgery. Chemotherapy of TS-1 (80 mg/m2) was administered orally for 21 days, and weekly intravenous administration of CDDP (20 mg/m2) was done 3 times. Radiotherapy at 2 Gy/day was combined 15 times (total 30 Gy). The tumor responded well to the treatment, and the size was remarkably reduced. Chemoradiotherapy using TS-1 and weekly CDDP revealed their efficacy for esophageal cancer.
