Complete remission of multiple recurrent hepatocellular carcinomas by oral administration of enteric-coated tegafur/uracil in a patient with huge hepatocellular carcinoma extending to the inferior vena cava after hepatic resection: analysis of mRNA expression of fluoropyrimidine metabolism enzymes in the primary tumor

Abstract

We herein report the complete remission of multiple recurrent hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs) by the oral administration of tegafur/uracil (UFT) alone. A 56-year-old Japanese man with two huge HCCs was admitted and underwent hepatic resection.
