Colorectal cancer remains an important cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. We present the case of a 58-year-old male patient admitted in Timisoara Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgical Center, Romania, with transverse colon cancer and synchronous liver metastases, who underwent a major hepatectomy and a segmental colon resection performed in the same operative time. The patient had a postoperative outcome without major complications and with no signs of local or distant recurrence at 15 months postoperatively. Conclusions: The synchronous approach of both the primary tumor and liver metastases in colorectal cancer is a possible therapeutic method, even in the case of major hepatectomies.
