The authors report their experience of liver transplantation for metastatic tumor in 6 patients. Although good palliation can be offered with prolonged survival in some patients, secondaries of the liver remain the poorest indication for liver transplantation. A prospective multicentric study would be needed to evaluate the usefulness of post-transplantation chemotherapy.
