Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most important cause of cancer death in South Korea. Approximately two thirds of the HCC patients are diagnosed in the unresectable stage. Conventional transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) showed survival benefit in the unresectable HCC patients, but it had some limitations, such as low response rate and systemic toxicity. Drug eluting bead has been reported low systemic toxicity and higher tumor necrosis rate. We report a case which showed response to TACE with DC bead in patient that showed no response to conventional TACE.
