Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma is rare. By chance, a Chinese woman detected a mass in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen. Ultrasonography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a solid tumor with a central fibrous scar locating at the posterior inferior subsegment of the right hepatic lobe. The tumor was successfully resected and histopathological examination revealed a fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma. Our case shows that fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma may also occur in Chinese as well as in Japanese and Westerners.
