Liver metastases from extremity soft tissue sarcoma.

Liver involvement by soft tissue sarcoma is an unfavorable prognostic factor for survival. Complete resection of liver metastases can bring improvement in selected patients, but chemotherapy remains the only palliative treatment option for most. Anecdotal long-term survival of patients with unresectable liver metastases treated with systemic chemotherapy has been reported, such as the patient presented here.
