An autopsy case of hepatocellular carcinoma combined with sarcoma and mesenchymal cell tumor or cholangiole cell carcinoma is presented. The main tumor nodes in the liver consisted of hepatocellular carcinoma and sarcoma. Extrahepatic metastases showed characteristics of monocytic or reticulum cells and hemangioendothelial sarcomas. In this report, some problems concerning hepatocellular carcinoma and sarcomatous representation of the liver tumor are proposed. Differentiation to the monocyte-macrophage-like cells and a reticulum cell pattern were present in the metastatic locations. Thus strongly suggesting that the sarcoma may have arisen from mesenchymal cells, particularly from the Kupffer cells or endothelia consisted of the sinusoid. However, mesenchymal tumor from cholangiole cells might be associated in a part of the sarcomatous cells.
