Abstract: A 68-year-old woman with neck swelling and dysphagia presented at our hospital in February of 2002. In CT findings, a tumor invading the trachea and cervical lymph node metastasis (LN met) were found. No distant metastasis was observed. Therefore, we diagnosed cervical esophageal cancer (T4N3MO: stage IVa) clinically, and performed chemoradiotherapy concurrently. Radiotherapy was performed by a 4 MV linear accelerator, at a total dose of 60 Gy with a fraction of 2 Gy per day. Chemotherapy was administered as 2 cycles of cisplatin (CDDP) at 6 mg/m^2/day and 5-fluorouracil (5-Fu) at 300 mg/m^2/day (day 1-5, 8-12). After these treatments, the tumors reduced markedly and calcifications could be detected in the esophageal tumor and LN mets in CT. However, a few months later, mediastinal LN met was found, so we again performed chemoradiotherapy. Radiotherapy was performed by a 10 MV linear accelerator, at a total dose of 30 Gy with a fraction of 2 Gy per day. Chemotherapy was administered as 1 cycle of CDDP at 10 mg/day and 5~Fu at 500 mg/day (day 1-5, 8-12). After this treatment, additional chemotherapy was administered as 1 cycle of nedaplatin at 10 mg/day and 5-Fu at 500 mg/day (day 1-5, 8-12). About 10 months after the first treatment, the primary tumor grew again and the dysphagia worsened. Finally, the patient died of hemorrage due to the local tumor. We report here a rare case of calcification in presumed esophageal cancer after radiotherapy. This case suggests that the tumor calcification is a marked tumor response after chemoradiotherapy.
