Abstract

A 69-year-old man was diagnosed with advanced gastric cancer and underwent total gastrectomy (tubular adenocarcinoma, tub2, pT3N0M0, stageⅡA). Eight months after the surgery, recurrence on the anastomosis was observed. Tumor invasion of the aortic artery was suspected, and the patient was considered inoperable. He was treated with S-1/CDDP plus trastuzumab therapy as a neoadjuvant chemotherapy regimen. After 4 courses of the chemotherapy, significant tumor reduction was observed, and the patient underwent anastomosis resection. Chemotherapy with trastuzumab appears to be an effective NAC treatment for HER2-positive, advanced gastric cancer.
