A 52-year-old man who underwent left hepatectomy with lymph node dissection due to hepatocellular carcinoma with lymph node metastasis. After 5 months of surgery, multiple recurrences were founded throughout the liver, lung, bones and intraperitoneal lymph nodes. The patient died of liver failure after rupture of recurrent hepatic tumor. From our experience, we reaffirmed that the prognosis of patients with nodal metastasis from hepatocellular carcinoma was generally poor, even after hepatic resection with lymph node dissection was performed.
