Abstract: Twenty-five patients with gastric cancer were clinically evaluated in terms of a clinicopathological pattern in younger patients. 1) Female was more predominant than male. 2) The main tumor location was the cardia and the gross appearance was Borrmann IV of undifferentiated carcinoma in the majority. 3) Less hepatic metastases were seen in younger patients, whereas, the common extension in younger patients was peritoneal dissemination and serosal invasion. 4) The surgical outcome was satisfactory as far as a curative operation be performed. On the contrary, the result of non-curative operation was extremely pessimistic. Recently great strides in the surgical outcome of gastric cancer have been achieved in combination with adjuvant therapy of immunochemotherapy. Improvement of surgical outcome is attributable to the standarized operative procedure with reasonable node dissection. It is common that carcinomas in various organs affect older patients, not usually younger ones. The purpose of this study is to clarify the clinicopathologic features of gastric cancer in younger patients on the basis of our result of clinical experience.
