Abstract

We describe the case of a 55-year-old woman initially diagnosed with locally advanced rectal cancer and one synchronous hepatic metastasis in 1998 who was treated by neoadjuvant chemotherapy and chemoradiotherapy followed by resection of the rectum and simultaneous atypical liver resection. After complete remission for about 4 years, the patient metachronously developed two local relapses and a liver metastasis, which were curatively treated by means of either radical resection or local ablative therapies and chemotherapy. Since the patient has refused radical resection of pulmonary metastases in November 2010, she is under palliative chemotherapy and is still alive. This case illustrates that a multimodality treatment can provide long-term survival in patients with metastasized colorectal cancer.
