Ann Hepatobiliary Pancreat Surg 2019 Feb 28;23(1):77-79. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Gleneagles Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia.

The recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) can mainly be divided into two phases or types: the intrahepatic recurrence (IHR) and the extrahepatic recurrence (EHR). Generally speaking, the EHR is usually referenced as being the less common of the two types or categories. In a post-hemihepatectomy patient with routine surveillance at 6 months, it was noted that the patient appeared to have an elevated alpha-fetoprotein, and also complained of vague lower abdominal pain.
