[A case report of pedunculated hepatoma with very rare remote metastases after the resection].

Abstract

A 44-year-old woman presented with a tumorous mass on the right hypochondrium, however, no clear tumor was detected. One year later she was found to have an abdominal tumor. Upon surgery, the abdominal tumor was identified as a pedunculated hepatoma arising from the right hepatic lobe and was resected radically. Two years later, the hepatoma recurred as very rare remote metastases to the lung, brain and gingiva, and the patient died of respiratory failure. Autopsy showed no local recurrence in the liver, but remote metastases were present in the lung, brain and lymph nodes. The gingival tumor had disappeared following irradiation therapy.
