The number of older adults with hepatocelluar carcinoma (HCC) has been increasing with longer life expectancy and earlier diagnosis and treatment. However, older patients have lesser function reserve of multiple organ systems, more disability rate. Therefore, the treatment of elderly HCC patients remains a challenge worldwide. Recently, studies suggests that the survival outcome of older patients may be comparable to that of younger patients and active treatment may achieve promising rates of local and systemic control in selected patients. Based on above suggestions, we herein offer our experience of a case achieved partial remission by sequential therapy of transarterial chemoembolization after transarterial radioemoblization in elderly HCC patient with multiple metastasis. Further study, maybe regarding a combination of locoregional and systemic treatment, is necessary on how to manage HCC in elderly patients.
