Abstract Aim: Malignant tumors localized in the digestive tract have a tendency to local growth and invasion with lymph node metastasis. Distant metastases through blood with prevalent liver location are detected late in disease progression, in an advanced stage, when therapeutic possibilities are often limited to palliative therapy.
Material and methods: The study included a series of patients with liver metastases admitted to the Center of Gastroenterology and Hepatology Iasi between January 1 and October 10, for cancer colon liver metastases treatment identification of primitive tumor. The patients were investigated by endoscopy, imaging, laboratory tests including tumor markers.
Males were most affected, regardless of primitive tumor.
Conclusions: Although diagnostic and therapeutic methods have made remarkable progress in recent years, these tumors, by their frequency and advanced stage at diagnosis, remain both an oncologic and public health problem mainly due to the limitations of curative treatment.

Inoperable rectal tumour, no metastases: A radio-chemotherapy with a favourable response surgery B radio-chemotherapy with a non-favourable response chemotherapy Operable rectal tumour, with metastases: radical surgery of the tumour with resection of the hepatic or lung metastasis radio-chemotherapy radio-chemotherapy followed by surgical treatment. Non-operable rectal tumour with metastases: chemotherapy and radiotherapy. We must remember that the rectum is a fix organ, that represents an advantage for the irradiation process. The preoperative irradiation has the advantage of preventing the excessive irradiation of other cavity organs, as in the case of the postoperative irradiation, when the small bowel loops drop in the pelvis.
