Although chemotherapy may not play a central role in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), it must be one of the important possibilities of multimodal treatment for advanced HCC. Intra-arterial (IA) chemotherapy which can deliver high concentration of drug to the tumor has been widely used in unresectable or intractable HCC. It seems to reduce the incidence of systemic side effects and improve drug efficacy. For this therapy, catheter implantation is required to infuse anti-tumor drug. Here, we report a case of patient with complication developed during IA chemotherapy for advanced HCC with portal vein thrombosis.
