Background. Adenosquamous carcinoma of the pancreas is a rare tumor with an extremely poor survival rate. No obvious evidence that multidisciplinary treatments improves the prognosis and survival has been reported.
Patient and Results. A 63-yr-old female with adenosquamous carcinoma of the pancreas underwent extended radical surgery, intraoperative radiation therapy, postoperative intraarterial chemotherapy, and external beam radiation therapy. The patient is alive at 40 mo after surgery with no recurrence.
Conclusions. Multidisciplinary treatments including aggressive surgery, intraoperative radiation therapy, and locoregional chemotherapy might improve the survival of patients with adenosquamous carcinoma of the pancreas to inhibit liver metastasis and local recurrence.
