Diagnosis: Multiple metastatic sites including: liver, spleen, pancreas, adrenals, a pelvic mass, cardinal nodes, mesenteric nodes, thoracic nodes, bone mets and, most unusually, bone marrow involvement.

Complication: Seven years of Common Variable Immuno-deficiency for which he received IVIgG.

Chemotherapy: Kushner's protocol: 7 chemo cycles = adriamycin, vincristine, and cytoxin cycled with ifosfamide and etoposide

Surgery Debulking: Removed omentum, biopsied his liver, and removed tumor seeding from the peritoneal wall and diaphragm. Unable to completely resect the tumor. The liver found to still contain a large amount of tumor.
