BACKGROUND Micrometastases consisting of one to a few cells in lymph nodes resected during gastrectomy are difficult to identify using conventional hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stains. It has been shown that immunostaining for cytokeratins is effective in detecting lymph node micrometastasis in a variety of human tumors, but only a few previous reports demonstrated its use in the treatment of patients with early and advanced gastric carcinoma, and those reports had conflicting results.
