Abstract

Spontaneous regression of hepatocellular carcinoma is rare phenomenon. A 74-year-old man was found to have a hepatocellular carcinoma with intrahepatic metastases in the lateral segment of the liver. Before surgery, he developed severe cholangitis due to choledocholithiasis and was treated endoscopically. The tumor marker level decreased markedly, and hepatectomy was performed. The resected tumor demonstrated complete necrosis.
