We present a case of long-term survival in a patient with advanced ascending colon cancer and multiple liver metastases after receiving multimodality therapy, which included hepatic atrial infusion(HAI)and 4 hepatectomies. At diagnosis, the 65- year-old woman underwent right hemicolectomy for advanced ascending colon cancer with multiple liver metastases (T3N1M1[H2], Stage Ⅳ). The 11 liver metastatic lesions were treated by weekly HAI of 5-fluorouracil(5-FU). The lesions reduced in size(response rate 28.9%)immediately following treatment, and no new lesions were detected, but 10 months after treatment the size of the S2 tumor had increased. Systemic chemotherapy with irinotecan and S-1 was administered. Continued development of the S2 tumor in the liver prompted a radical lateral segment hepatectomy. Four months later, a computed tomography(CT)scan revealed a S6 tumor of the liver, for which a posterior segment hepatectomy was performed. A CT scan showing a S1 tumor in the liver 9 months later resulted in chemotherapeutic treatment with CapeOX, followed by mFOLFOX6. Despite treatment, the S1 tumor developed further, prompting a S1 partial hepatectomy. A further partial S8 hepatectomy was performed 7 years after surgery for the primary lesion following a CT scan that revealed a S8 tumor in the liver. There has been no recurrence of tumors in the 5 years and 5 months since this last hepatectomy.
