A-75 year-old man, diagnosed as ascending colon cancer with large bowel obstruction, multiple hepatic, lunge metastases and peritoneal dissemination, was treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy (FOLFOX4: 2 courses) and subsequent ileocecal resection. Postoperative systemic chemotherapy with hepatic arterial infusion (HAI) of 5-FU was performed in the following fashion: FOLFOX4, FOLFIRI with or without bevacizumab or cetuximab was administered every 4 weeks and a weekly HAI twice every 4 weeks. By those treatments, the patient could maintain a 30-month long NC effect and a good performance status.
