We herein report the case of a patient with mucinous gastric carcinoma with peritoneal dissemination that disappeared after neoadjuvant chemotherapy with S-1 alone. The patient has survived for over 23 months after surgery, without recurrence. A 60-year old man was referred to our hospital because of an advanced gastric cancer, detected by upper gastrointestinal endoscopy at another hospital. Staging laparoscopy was performed on October 25, 2002, and revealed massive peritoneal dissemination. Two courses of neoadjuvant chemotherapy with S-1 were administered, at 120?mg/day for 28 days, as one course. Total gastrectomy, with D2 lymph node dissection, was performed on January 24, 2003. The peritoneal dissemination had macroscopically disappeared and the cytology of the peritoneal lavage fluid was class III. His final diagnosis was gastric carcinoma, MLU, type 3, T2(SS), P0, H0, M0, N3, CY0, stage IV.
