Article: [A case of advanced gastric cancer with disseminated carcinomatosis of bone marrow treated by S-1 and CDDP].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: A 33-year-old man was admitted to our hospital due to DIC and multiple bone metastasis after distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer (Stage IIIB). We diagnosed disseminated carcinomatosis of bone marrow by gastric cancer. The patient was treated with combination chemotherapy of S-1 and CDDP (S-1 80 mg/m (2), po, day 1-21 and CDDP 60 mg/m(2), iv, day 8). After one course of the treatment, DIC was resolved and severe pain in his back and legs which had been poorly controlled was dramatically improved. He could thus be discharged from our hospital and survived for about six months. S-1 and CDDP therapy are considered to be effective for disseminated carcinomatosis of bone marrow due to gastric cancer, even if complicated by DIC.Gan to kagaku ryoho.

Article: Recovery from marked altered consciousness in a patient with adult-onset type II citrullinemia diagnosed by DNA analysis and treated with a living related partial liver transplantation.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: A 21-year-old woman was admitted with altered consciousness and hyperammonemia. She was diagnosed as having adult-onset type II citrullinemia (CTLN2) by DNA analysis. The patient had mutations of the SLC25A13 gene, which were compound heterozygotes of 851 del 4 and IVS11+1G>A. CTLN2 has a poor prognosis, in spite of various intensive medications, and we performed a living related partial liver transplantation (LRLT). Over a 2-year follow-up, the patient has been well. CTLN2 can be diagnosed by the DNA analysis and can be treated by LRLT.Internal Medicine 07/2002; 41(7):555-60. · 0.94 Impact Factor
