Description
We report 2 cases of rectal cancer responding to postoperative chemotherapy with 5-fluorouracil and isovorin. Case 1 : A 60 years-old woman underwent low-anterior resection for rectal cancer in 1994 and partial right lung resection for metastatic lung cancer in 1998. She underwent chemotherapy with 5-fluorouracil and isovorin for mediastinal lymph node metastasis and high score of serum CEA in 2000. After the chemotherapy, the lymph node shrank and serum CEA normalized. Case 2 : A 75 years-old woman underwent low-anterior resection and hysterectomy for rectal cancer with multiple lung metastasis in 2000. She underwent postoperative chemotherapy with 5-fluorouracil and isovorin for metastatic lung cancer. The lung tumor shrank and serum CEA decreased.
Chemotherapy with 5-fluorouracil and isovorin seemed to be effective for advanced colon cancer. We should reconfirm the effectiveness and improve the directions for use.
