We describe the case of a 60 year-old man with advanced gastric cancer. The patient started chemotherapy with a combination of docetaxel, cisplatin and capecitabine. In a radiological assessment after the third treatment cycle, a significant reduction of adenopathies and gastric wall thickening was observed. Partial remission was maintained until the end of the chemotherapy (6 cycles). The follow-up evaluations indicated the radiological remission was maintained and that there was a reduction of gastric wall thickening and normalisation of remote lymph nodes. After 43 months since the final treatment cycle, the patient remains progression-free.
