A case of hepatocellular carcinoma associated with Waldenström's macroglobulinemia is reported. During treatment and follow-up of hepatocellular carcinoma, a 54-year-old man was found to have a progressive monoclonal increase in serum IgM level and subsequently was diagnosed as having Waldenström's macroglobulinemia. Chemotherapy was carried out to prevent hyperviscosity syndrome due to Waldenström's macroglobulinemia without any surgical management for hepatocellular carcinoma. Read More

The hyperviscosity of serum in Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia may be associated with a viscous pancreatic juice that leads to stone formation. Read More
