The patient was a 60-year-old man who had been admitted to our hospital because of elevated serum CA19-9 levels. Endoscopy revealed a Borrmann type 2 tumor of the jejunum. Computed tomography (CT) revealed lymph node metastases and peritoneal seeding. Hence, he was diagnosed with advanced jejunal cancer with distant metastasis (T4N1M0 stage). We performed partial resection of the jejunum, and he underwent chemotherapy with docetaxel( DOC) and S-1 for the peritoneal seeding postoperatively. Follow-up CT revealed that the chemotherapy was effective, and the patient achieved complete remission following 9 months of treatment.
