The liver is the most frequent site of metastases in colorectal cancer. Commonly used anticancer drugs in colorectal cancer are 5-fluorouracil, oxaliplatin and irinotecan 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and oxaliplatin have very few numbers of studies that support their safety in hepatic dysfunction, but pharmacokinetic studies of anticancer drugs focused on the single-agents; however, there is lack of data about drug combinations such as 5-fluorouracil leucovorin and oxaliplatin (FOLFOX) and 5-fluorourocil, leucovorin and irinotecan (FOLFIRI) regimens. We demonstrated one patient with colorectal cancer and severe liver dysfunction secondary to hepatic metastases. Laboratory investigation on admission showed total bilirubin 22.5 mg/dl, alkaline phosphatase 1137 IU/l, aspartate amino transferase 254 IU/l, alanine aminotransferase 164 IU/l and carcinoembryonic antigen levels 863 ng/ml. We initiated a 5-FU/oxaliplatin-based combination chemotherapy. Our data supports the safety and feasibility of FOLFOX regimen in patients with severe liver dysfunction secondary to liver metastases of colorectal cancer.
