A 64-year-old male was admitted due to liver mass. He had radical prostatectomy owing to prostate cancer 5 years ago. At that time, the liver mass was found on the right posterior superior segment and had enlarged to 7 cm in diameter at Nov. 2001. The transhepatic chemoembolization with adriamycin 50 mg and gelform was performed but the viable portions of tumor were remained. Total bilirubin was 0.7 mg/dL, Albumin 2.9 g/dL, AST/ALT 24/18 IU/L and AFP 60.31 ng/mL. The ICG R15 was 6.2%. The right lobectomy of liver was done and the pathologic results were sarcomatoid hepatocellular carcinoma. The level of AFP was decreased 2 month after operation but the patient was dead 4 month after operation because of the metastasis to the right psoas muscle and suspected peritoneal seeding.
Key Words: Sarcomatoid hepatocellular carcinoma; Spindle cell hepatocellular carcinoma; Hepatectomy; Metastasis; Prognosis
