A Case of Long-Term Survival of the Pancreatic Tail Cancer with the Concomitant Small Liver Metastasis



A Case of Long-Term Survival of the Pancreatic Tail Cancer with the Concomitant Small Liver Metastasis



Gan to Kagaku Ryoho. Cancer and ChemoTherapy 45(2): 387-389



We hereby report a case of long-term survival of the pancreatic tail cancer with a synchronous small liver metastasis. A 62- year-old male with pancreatic tail cancer was incidentally diagnosed with single tiny metastasis in the left medial section of the liver duringthe distal pancreatectomy. The lesion was also resected together with primary lesion. Since then, systemic chemotherapies such as gemcitabine(GEM)plus S-1 combination therapy, GEM alone therapy and S-1 alone therapy had been given to escape from recurrence. However, the recurrences were found in the liver at 21 months after surgery. Left hepatectomy was performed for metastatic lesions. Afterwards, proton radiation therapy was twice performed for the metastatic lesions in the liver which were unable to be removed by surgery alone. Partial resection of transverse colon was also needed to be performed for the bowel obstruction caused by recurrence on the surgical margin of the liver. Systemic chemotherapies includingS -1 therapy, FOLFIRINOX therapy and GEM plus nab-paclitaxel therapy have been continued throughout his entire treatment history after recurrence. He has been keepingin good physical condition with these multidisciplinary therapies, even though 51 months have passed since the first evidence of liver metastasis was diagnosed.
