Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the fourth most common cancer in Korea and a common cause of cancer death. Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is used as palliative therapy for patients with inoperable HCC. TACE is an effective treatments for inoperable HCC, but variable complications due to using embolic agents can occur after TACE. Complications due to embolic agents include pulmonary lipiodol embolism, splenic infarction, cerebral lipiodol infarction, and spinal cord injury. This is a rare case of spinal cord injury after a sixth TACE via right T9 intercostal artery.
