Pathological complete response after neoadjuvant chemotherapy for rectal cancer with synchronous multiple liver metastases: a report of an unusual case

Background Systemic chemotherapy for stage IV colorectal cancer has advanced markedly in the recent years. We report an unusual case of 13 synchronous liver metastases for which a pathological complete response was achieved with neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) consisting of a combination of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), oxaliplatin, leucovorin (mFOLFOX6), and bevacizumab.
