Nanoparticle albumin-bound (nab)-paclitaxel has shown promising activity in advanced gastric cancer treatment. We herein report a case of advanced gastric cancer involving long-term management with a single administration of nab-paclitaxel. A 71-year-old man diagnosed with advanced gastric cancer with malignant ascites was treated with nab-paclitaxel as a second-line chemotherapy. He refused treatment continuation because of various severe toxicities in the first treatment cycle; he was therefore followed-up without any further treatments. Despite this, no disease progression was observed over 9 months. After progression, he received dose-dense paclitaxel, but he did not respond to this treatment and eventually died.
