A 50-year-old man with advanced gastric cancer and a tumor embolus in the portal vein was referred to our hospital. We diagnosed the tumor as cStage III B (cT3, cN2, cH0, P0, M0) gastric cancer, and selected neoadjuvant S-1 (80 mg/m2) and CDDP (60 mg/m2) therapy for him. After 2 courses of chemotherapy, the embolus in the portal vein disappeared. After additional chemotherapy, the primary tumor and regional lymph node revealed a partial response (PR), and judging from the results from the barium meal study, upper GI endoscopic findings and CT scan, a total gastrectomy with lymph node dissection was performed.
