Case report: 75 years old female patient was referred with large, multifocal colorectal liver metastasis. Prior to this consultation she received chemotherapies of various protocols and series. Liver metastasis, however, increased at about 3 times of the original size during the 5 months of the oncological treatment. A right extended hepatectomy was planned to remove the tumor, but the residual liver (FLR) was found to be too small. Portal occlusion technique was necessary to induce the hypertrophy of the FLR. Due to rapid tumor progression we decided to perform the first ALPPS (PVL + in situ split) procedure in Hungary. After a very fast (9 days) and significant (94%) hypertrophy of the FLR the planned liver resection was successfully performed.
