Abstract
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the third most common cancer in korean population. Surgical management is the mainstay of HCC. Surgical resection and liver transplantation shows the best outcomes in well-selected patients. But few patients are possible to benefit from surgical resection or liver transplantation. The majority of cases of HCC are unresectable, but there are no proven treatment modalities for these cases. In small number of articles showed the favorable result of adjuvant chemotherapy, and transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) for unresectable HCCs. But there are some drawbacks, such as small number of sample size and variablity of study design at each studies. Hereby we report a patients of HCC, who was performed hepatectomy after tumor down sizing with TACE.
