Abstract

A 64-year-old female was hospitalized because of multiple liver metastasis, during the postoperative observation of chromophobe cell renal carcinoma. Injection of Epirubicin/Lipodol into the right hepatic artery followed by transcatheter arterial embolization was performed two times, and the metastatic foci responded favorably to this therapy. Since no new metastatic tumors were observed in the liver nor any other organs, a partial hepatectomy was thus performed. The liver tumor was pathologically diagnosed to be metastasis of the chromophobe cell renal carcinoma. The postoperative course has been uneventful and at present, 6 months after the operation, no further tumors have been observed.
