We report the case of an unresected, metastatic gastric cancer, which was treated with a very short course of the oral 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) prodrug S-1. The patient had to discontinue chemotherapy during the first treatment cycle due to severe toxicity, but achieved a pathologically confirmed, long-term complete response of her primary tumour, a diffuse-type poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma.
