Hepatoma has been related to chemical, dietary, metabolic, infectious, and genetic factors. therapeutic hepatic irradiation has never been associated with hepatoma. A case of hepatocellular carcinoma is presented that occurred two decades after radiotherapy for presumed hepatic hemangioma. Radiation-related liver disease is discussed in general, with emphasis placed on radiation hepatocarcinogenesis.
