[Article in Japanese]

Author information

  • 1The Department of Urology, Osaka Prefectural Medical Center, Osaka, Japan.


A 55-year-old woman who presented with a retroperitoneal tumor was referred to our department. At the age of 51, she underwent a total gastrectomy for gastric cancer. Postoperatively, TS-1 administration was given for Virchow lymph node metastasis, which disappeared within 2 years and TS-1 was stopped. However, computed tomography revealed a retroperitoneal tumor adjacent to the inferior vena cava, which gradually increased and began to compress the inferior vena cava. Under a diagnosis of retroperitoneal tumor, laparoscopic resection was performed. Pathological findings led to a diagnosis of lymph node metastasis from an adenocarcinoma of the stomach.
