We report a long-term survival case of advanced sigmoid colon cancer with massive metastases to the para-aortic lymph nodes. The patient was a 63-year-old male. He underwent sigmoidectomy with D3 + para-aortic lymphadenectomy for advanced sigmoid colon cancer. Histological examination showed a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma, ss, ly2, v2, n4 (total 30/64, para-aortic lymph nodes 18/39). From 6 months to 4 years after the operation, tegafur/uracil (UFT) was performed as chemotherapy. After 8-year disease-free interval, CT showed solitary mediastinal lymph node metastases. He underwent thoracoscopic mediastinal lymphadenectomy. Histological examination revealed metastases from colon cancer.
