A surgical resection is a major curative treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in Korea. However, the respectability of HCC at the time of diagnosis is low (10-30%) because the cancer is often identified as advanced stage. Nevertheless, some of the patients were known to have a curative resection after successful downstaging therapy. We report a HCC with bile duct invasion which was successfully downstaged by the transarterial chemoembolization and treated by surgical resection.
