Abstract

Use of yttrium-90 (Y-90) is used for primary liver tumors and a handful of liver metastatic lesions. Y-90 treatment for metastatic adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) to the liver is currently off-label, with one previously documented case report. In this case report, we present a 52-year-old woman with ACC and extensive liver metastatic disease. After failed chemotherapy, multidisciplinary discussion suggested potential Y-90 treatment for palliative purposes. After undergoing Y-90 treatment separately to the right and then the left hepatic lobes, subsequent patient visits demonstrated significantly improved clinical function as well as complete radiographic resolution of liver metastatic disease mainly from ACC. This case report demonstrates the potential efficacy of Y-90 for off-label uses in liver metastatic disease. This case and similar cases may open the door to a wide variety of potential indications for Y-90 treatment.
