A case involving long-term survival following bile duct cancer with para-aortic lymph node metastasis that was treated by multidisciplinary therapy



A case involving long-term survival following bile duct cancer with para-aortic lymph node metastasis that was treated by multidisciplinary therapy



Gan to Kagaku Ryoho. Cancer and ChemoTherapy 40(12): 1741-1743



Complete resection of advanced bile duct cancer is difficult due to the anatomical location of the tumor and invasion into other organs. Even if a complete resection is achieved, the survival rates of patients with bile duct cancer after surgery are lower as compared to those associated with other gastrointestinal tumors. Certain cases with para-aortic lymph node metastasis have a poor prognosis. In the present report, we describe a case involving long-term survival following bile duct cancer that was treated by multidisciplinary therapy (particle radiotherapy, surgical resection, chemotherapy). In the present case, we detected lymph node (LN) metastasis only in LN#16, but not in LN#13 or LN#17. We believe that particle radiotherapy, consisting of proton and carbon-ion, can be used to control the lymphatic metastasis around the pancreas head and hepatoduodenal ligament. Our findings suggest that particle radiotherapy can be a standard neoadjuvant therapy for bile duct cancer.
