According to AASLD practice guideline, for patients who present with advanced hepatocelluar carcinoma, new data indicates the efficacy of sorafenib in prolonging life. But there are no data comparing combination transarterial chemoemboliation with sorafenib to sorafenib treatment alone. We experienced a case that treated a patient with combination therapy including transarterial chemoembolization for intrahepatic hepatocelluarcarcinoma, radiation therapy for portal vein thrombosis and sorafenib treatment. He was in stable disease state after 6 months later. Therefore, it seems to be need to study for comparing combination therapy to sorafenib, or to transarterial chemoembolization.
