We describe a case of a patient treated for cognitive dysfunction (CD) with suspected thiamine deficiency (TD). A 74-year-old man with gastric cancer presented with grade 3 diarrhea and grade 1 anorexia. He had been receiving trastuzumab plus tegafur (a chemotherapeutic fluorouracil prodrug), gimeracil, and oteracil (S-1) and oxaliplatin.
