69-year-old woman underwent resection of a tumor diagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma of the anal canal. After 4 years and 5 months, computed tomography(CT)showed abdominal and pelvic lymph node swelling. Chemotherapy consisting of biweekly docetaxel(35mg/m2)+nedaplatin(35mg/m2)achieved a partial response. After 20 cycles of chemotherapy, the patient was treated with radiotherapy because of a pelvic lymph node recurrence. Since then, no recurrence has occurred for 16 months. The adverse event was Grade 2 in leucopenia and neutropenia. This case suggested that chemoradiotherapy consisting of docetaxel +nedaplatin may be effective and safe for treating anal canal squamous cell carcinoma.
