A 74-year-old Japanese woman with early gastric cancer was successfully treated with uracil and tegafur (UFT). She was diagnosed by endoscopy (including endoscopic biopsy and endosonography) with an early gastric cancer, type IIa + IIc, on the greater curvature of the angulus. Surgical procedures or endoscopic therapy could not be performed because the patient had severe ischemic heart disease. Therefore, chemotherapy with UFT was administered at 300 mg/day for 15 months. Follow-up endoscopy, endosonography, and biopsy showed disappearance of the gastric cancer. To our knowledge, this is the first case report of the complete response of an early gastric cancer to UFT in the English-language literature.
