Breast cancer with oligometastasis is not uncommon. Greater therapeutic advantage has been reported in various literatures with evolution of treatment technique. Here we report a case of ductal carcinoma right breast with a single metastasis to liver. This patient was treated with radical intent with chemotherapy, surgery, and then followed by radiotherapy to right chest wall along with stereotactic body radiotherapy for liver metastasis.

Here we present the procedural details of this complex procedure.
