    Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is a safe and effective treatment for solitary cancerous lesions. The present study reported a rare case of sustained remission after SBRT for oligorecurrence in the liver in a patient with esophageal carcinoma. A 60-year-old Japanese man presented with a chief complaint of dysphagia. On medical examination, the patient was diagnosed as having squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus that was clinically staged as T4bN1M0. The patient received definitive concurrent chemoradiotherapy, consisting of four 28-day cycles of chemotherapy comprising nedaplatin 80 mg/mon day 1 and S-1 120 mg/body orally on days 1-14, with radiotherapy comprising a total of 50 Gy in daily fractions of 2 Gy. After a 9-month disease-free interval following the primary treatment, a solitary liver metastasis was identified. The patient underwent SBRT using a radiation dose of 48 Gy in 4 fractions and two 28-day cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy comprising nedaplatin 80 mg/mon day 1, and S-1 100 mg/body orally on days 1-14. The patient exhibited no signs of recurrence for 3 years with sustained local control. SBRT may be considered a treatment option for patients with relapsed esophageal cancer with oligo-recurrence in the liver.

    For the majority of inoperable esophageal cancer cases, chemoradiotherapy is the most suitable treatment option. Cetuximab may provide certain benefits, however, this can be an expensive therapy. Additionally, stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is typically contraindicated for esophageal cancer due to the potential for esophageal perforation and stenosis. Read More

    A 70-year-old woman was diagnosed as having advanced lower thoracic esophageal cancer with abdominal lymph node metastases(T3N1M0, Stage III). After administering 2 courses of neoadjuvant chemotherapy with 5-fluorouracil(5- FU)( 800 mg/m2)and cisplatin(80 mg/m2), we performed curative surgery with D2 lymph node dissection. The patient could not receive adjuvant chemotherapy because of her poor performance status. Read More

    Limited treatment options exist for isolated local recurrence of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA) following surgical resection accompanied by neoadjuvant or adjuvant chemoradiation therapy (CRT). While select patients are eligible for re-resection, recurrent lesions are often unresectable. Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) represents a possible minimally invasive treatment option for these patients, although published data in this setting are currently lacking. Read More

    The purpose of this study was to investigate clinical outcomes following stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) for lung metastases as oligo-recurrence. From May 2003 to June 2014, records for 66 patients with 76 oligo-recurrences in the lungs treated with SBRT were retrospectively reviewed. Oligo-recurrence primary sites and patient numbers were as follows: lungs, 31; colorectal, 13; head and neck, 10; esophagus, 3; uterus, 3; and others, 6. Read More
