BACKGROUND/AIMS Hepatocellular carcinoma is a common malignancy and a major complication of untreated haemochromatosis. Encapsulation of liver tumours has been associated with a better prognosis and longer disease-free periods following resection. This study investigated the source of the tumour capsule in patients with haemochromatosis and coexisting hepatocellular carcinoma and examined potential factors influencing development. METHODS Five haemochromatosis patients with encapsulated… CONTINUE READING
