Abstract
Current guidelines recommend sorafenib as the first-line molecular target agent for advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with extrahepatic metastasis and unresectable HCC. Sorafenib was reported to show survival benefit for patients with advanced HCC. However, complete response is extremely rare in patients treated with sorafenib. Here, we report a 52-year-old man with advanced HCC and pulmonary metastasis who showed complete response by sequential transarterial chemoembolization and continuous sorafenib. Complete response was sustained for 53-month until now.
Key Words: Hepatocellular carcinoma; Chemoembolization; Sorafenib
