Intracranial and orbital metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma: report of two cases.

Abstract

Two cases of rare intracranial and orbital metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma are presented. A 61-year-old woman was found to have a metastatic tumor in the right temporo-occipital lobe 1 year after undergoing treatment for a primary hepatoma. An osteolytic tumor was removed from the left orbit of a 58-year-old man and the primary tumor, a hepatoma, was discovered postoperatively. The intracranial and orbital tumors were verified to be hepatocellular carcinoma. Both patients died within 1 year of surgery. The relevant literature is briefly reviewed.
