A 33-year-old man, who underwent ileo-cecal resection and sigmoidectomy for concomitant cecal cancer and sigmoid colon cancer which was diagnosed during the emergent operation for the perforated acute appendicitis, suffered simultaneous multiple hepatic metastases. Postoperative hepatic aerial infusion chemotherapy with 5-FU was done (total dose 63 g), and the metastases were successfully disappeared (CR). Although 16-month passed from the operation, locoregional recurrence at the colorectal anastomosis and peritoneal dissemination were occurred. Aggressive resections of the recurrent sites (anterior resection of the rectum, ileum, ascending colon and other recurrent sites) and successive systemic administration of FOLFOX4(9-course), FOLFIRI (20-course) and capecitabine (15-course) were achieved. The patient survived for 4.5 years after the initial treatment.
