Introduction: Neuroendocrine Tumors (NETs) are slowly growing tumors with an indolent course. NETs often present with liver metastasis, and most of these tumors are inoperable at the time of presentation. Transarterial (chemo)embolization [TA(C)E] is widely available to manage liver metastasis of NET.

Introduction: Streptozocin (STZ) has been used as a key drug against advanced pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (pNETs). The standard in many countries is a daily STZ regimen combined with 5-fluorouracil administered once daily for 5 days every 6 weeks. However, in Japan, STZ was only covered by insurance beginning in 2015, and STZ is often used as monotherapy, as either a daily or a weekly regimen. There are few reports on STZ monotherapy for pNETs.
