Abstract

Recurrent esophagus cancer has an extremely poor prognosis in spite of systemic chemotherapy. Herein, we report cases of long survival after recurrence owing to topical treatment. The first patient was a 75-year-old man. He was diagnosed with clinical stage IIA esophagus cancer and underwent subtotal esophagectomy. The pathological stage was IIIB. Liver metastases appeared in S8 and S5, 8 months after surgery. Systemic chemotherapy and transcatheter arterial chemoembolization were performed. He had kept CR but died due to brain metastasis 1 year and 4 months after the recurrence. The second patient was a 68-year-old man. He underwent esophagectomy for clinical stage IIIB esophagus cancer. The pathological stage was also IIIB. Five metastases were seen in the bilateral lobes of the liver 8 months after surgery. Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization and stereotactic irradiation were performed and he has been in complete remission for a year. Topical treatment may represent an important strategy for treating liver metastasis from esophagus cancer.
