Primary gastric squamous cell carcinoma represents a rare entity. Up to date, only seven cases have been reported in Korea. This paper reports a case of a 51-year-old male patient whose stomach cancer was diagnosed during general routine check-up. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed a large ulcero-fungating mass on the body of the stomach. Histological examination of biopsy confirmed squamous cell carcinoma. An extended total gastrectomy including splenectomy and segmental resection of the large bowel was conducted. Postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy with capecitabine and oxaliplatin was followed. The patient has been following up the out patient's clinic after discharge.
