Successful resection of a liver metastasis from AFP-producing pancreatic cancer resulting in long-term survival: a case report and review of literature



Successful resection of a liver metastasis from AFP-producing pancreatic cancer resulting in long-term survival: a case report and review of literature



Pancreas 31(4): 416-419



The prognosis of patients with alpha-fetoprotein (AFP)producing pancreatic cancer is generally very poor. We, however, present a case of a 33-year-old man who survived AFP-producing pancreatic cancer and its metachronous liver metastasis. The patient had undergone a curative total pancreatectomy for AFP-producing pancreas head cancer invading to the tail, which was postoperatively confirmed by immunohistochemical staining of the resected specimen.
