A case of multiple hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) which was performed a living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) after down-staging by transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is reviewed. Generally, the recommended therapeutic strategy for this kind of HCC is TACE. However, the response of multiple HCC of this 48 year-old male patient was relatively good after 4 times of TACE, and we performed LDLT on the concept of clinical trial under the informed consent of patient and his families. Although there were two times recurrences in the liver and lung, he has overcome them and is still alive 66 months after LDLT. We suggest that liver transplantation could be an alternative strategy in the multiple HCC cases who show good responses after TACE.
