A 79-year-old male presented with epigastric discomfort and appetite loss. A type 1 advanced gastric tumor was detected by upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. Contrast-enhanced CT revealed a 7 cm mass with contrast effect at the greater curvature of the lower body of the stomach. No distant metastases were found. Staging laparoscopy confirmed gastric cancer with single giant lymph node metastasis, which was resectable, although the metastatic node possibly invaded the transverse colon. We performed total gastrectomy and partial colectomy. Pathological examination revealed the tumor was pT3N1; the mass was #4sa lymph node metastasis of gastric cancer. The postoperative course was uneventful. No tumor recurrence has been found for 12 months postoperatively.
