Extract

Stage III carcinoma of the cecum was diagnosed in our patient, a 63-year-old woman, in February of 2005. She was a nonsmoker, and the only significant items in her medical history included depression and hyperlipidemia. Further radiologic evaluations failed to reveal any other lesions. After undergoing a right hemicolectomy to remove the tumor, she received adjuvant chemotherapy consisting of 5-fluorouracil, leukovorin, oxaliplatin, and bevacizumab for a total of 10 cycles.
