Abstract

A 72-year-old man who had multiple hepatocellular carcinoma underwent eight times intrahepatic arterial chemotherapies of SMANCS and two times percutaneous ethanol injection (PEIT) therapies over three years, but new diffuse lesions appeared in the liver. He was treated by intermittent intrahepatic arterial chemotherapy with CDDP 10 mg/body/w and 5-FU 500 mg/body/w. Three months after the start of this therapy, the liver tumor was enlarged and multiple lung metastases appeared. But ten months later, the size of the hepatic lesion was reduced and the lung lesion disappeared. Fifteen months later, a solitary metastatic lesion in the left lung was resected. After two years, peritonitis carcinomatosa was observed, and the patient died.
