A 36-year-old man developed massive ascites, of which cytology proved Class V, and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy disclosed Borrmann type 4 gastric cancer. We performed dual arterial infusion chemotherapy (DAIC) through the celiac axis and superior mesenteric artery, followed by the operation including continuous hyperthermic peritoneal perfusion, total gastrectomy, subtotal colectomy, massive intestinal resection, splenectomy, cholecystectomy, appendectomy, and total parietal peritonectomy (TPP). Ascites disappeared and the CA125 level was normalized by DAIC. This operation was well tolerated. Though the histopathological study revealed multiple peritoneal disseminations on the visceral peritoneum of stomach, small intestine, colon, and parietal peritoneum such as Douglas' pouch, there were denatured cancer cells in the visceral peritoneum to which blood supply under DAIC was distributed. These results suggested the effect of neoadjuvant DAIC and the significance of TPP.
