This is the case of a 75-year old female patient with a medical history of bilateral mastectomy due to cancer, which occurred 30 and 15 years before referral. She was treated using adjuvant chemotherapy (tamoxifen) and radiotherapy, and had a liver-related kidney donation. The patient was found asymptomatic when she underwent a control abdominal ultrasound, which showed a 6cm hepatic mass in liver segments V and VI. A hepatic MRI was performed and showed a single liver lesion (68mm in diameter) located in the right liver lobe, and a PET-CT-scan demonstrated an increased hypermetabolic activity of the lesion without other systemic tumor dissemination. A laparoscopic right hepatectomy was scheduled. A laparoscopic surgery was performed. Laparoscopic exploration revealed multiple bilateral lesions, and an intraoperative ultrasound demonstrated a lesion in liver segment IV. An ALPPS approach was considered. There were no complications and the patient was discharged on the third postoperative day.
