A 54-year-old female patient with no medical history visited our hospital complaining of both pretibial pitting oedema for 6 months, and abdominal distension for 1 month. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed an 2.3cm sized tumour at segment 2 of the liver. Her Child-Turcotte-Pugh (CTP) class was C (score 11) at the initial visit. She was diagnosed as hepatocellular carcinoma (UICC stage II, BCLC stage D), and then she underwent conservative treatment for 1 month. After one month of conservative treatment, her liver function was improved to CTP class B (score 8), and then she underwent combination treatment of transarterial chemoembolization and radiofrequency ablation. However, her liver function was deteriorated gradually. She was transferred to other hospital for liver transplantation eventually. (J Liver Cancer 2014;14:131-134)
