We met a 61-year-old woman who had been suffering from dyspnea due to pleuritis carcinomatosa derived from recurrent breast cancer for which no former chemotherapy had been effective. Capecitabine mono-therapy could exert a drastic anticancer effect for lymphangiosis carcinomatosa causing more severe symptoms of dyspnea. This therapeutic option could be selected for patients with recurrent breast cancer for which the first- or second-line chemotherapy could not provide a sufficient anti-cancer efficacy and possibly serve to sustain the life quality of the patients.
