Abstract

A 58-year-old female was admitted to Ogikubo Hospital for advanced hepatocellular carcinoma in April 2007. Pathological examination showed moderately differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma. Tumor marker increased the PIVKA-n level became 129 mAU mL after the operation. FDG-PET was showed a solitary pelvic tumor sized about 2.5 cm in diameter. No other prominent metastatic lesions were demonstrated, so that a resection of intrapelvic tumor was performed in May 2008. The report which exhibited an asynchronism recurrence of peritoneal dissemination after hepatectomy is very rare. She has survived without a recurrence more than 13 months after the resection.
