Serum neurotensin concentrations were supranormal in 5 out of 20 patients with carcinoma of the liver. Liver specimens from 4 of these 5 patients demonstrated features typical of fibrolamellar carcinoma. Neurotensin may be suitable as a tumour marker for fibrolamellar carcinoma and may be useful for the detection of recurrences after treatment.
