ABSTRACT
Objectives:
This study examined the case of a patient with recurrent salivary duct carcinoma and hepatic metastasis.

Methods:
The patient was treated with Casodex/Nolvadex from January 25th 2021 onward with doses of bicalutamide (150 mg/day) and tamoxifen (10 mg/day) every four weeks. Simultaneously, the patient was treated with Korean medicine. The tumor size was measured using computed tomography (CT). Adverse events were evaluated according to the National Cancer Institute’s Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE), version 5.0.

Results:
Following the four-month treatment, the extent of the proximal portion of hepatic metastasis decreased, and discomfort and physical activity gradually improved.

Conclusions:
The results suggest that combined chemotherapy and Korean medicine may help to reduce tumor size and improve quality of life.
Key words: salivary duct carcinoma, hepatic metastasis, Casodex/Nolvadex, Korean medicine
