We report a case of 57-year-old woman suffering from advanced sigmoid colon cancer with adrenal and para-aortic lymph node recurrence. Sigmoidectomy was performed for sigmoid colon cancer in January 2002. Pathological staging was Stage II (pT3, pNO, pMO, Cur A). She received a UFT + CPT-11 regimen as preoperative chemotherapy for liver metastasis (S2, S7) from December 2002. A partial liver resection (S2, S7) was performed for liver metastasis in July 2003, and the UFT+CPT-11 was introduced as adjuvant chemotherapy. However, adrenal and para-aortic lymph node recurrence was detected in February 2007, and mFOLFOX6 was performed as preoperative chemotherapy. Right adrenalectomy and para-aortic lymph node dissection was performed in July 2007. mFOLFOX6 as postoperative chemotherapy was done, mFOLFOX6 + bevacizumab was started because of CEA increase. The chemotherapy was performed for 23 courses and temporarily stopped due to adverse reactions, such as peripheral neuropathy (grade 2), general fatigue (grade 1), and nausea (grade 1). She had no recurrence for almost 3 years after a resection of adrenal and para-aortic lymph node metastasis.
