Uncommon hepatic tumors: iconographic essay - Part 1.

Radiol Bras 2014 Sep-Oct;47(5):310-6

Private Docent, Professor, Department of Imaging Diagnosis - Escola Paulista de Medicina da Universidade Federal de São Paulo (EPM-Unifesp), São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Most malignant liver tumors are represented by hepatocellular carcinoma and cholangiocarcinoma; however a variety of other uncommon hepatic lesions might also be found. Common lesions such as hemangioma, focal nodular hyperplasia and metastases are well known and have already been extensively documented in the literature. The diagnosis of typical hepatic lesions may be done with some reliability by means of several imaging methods; on the other hand, uncommon lesions normally represent a diagnostic challenge for the radiologist.

Abdom Imaging 2015 Aug;40(6):1904-25

Departments of Radiology, Fondation Hôpital Saint-Joseph, 185 Rue Raymond Losserand, 75674, Paris, France.

A central element was first described in focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) as a so-called "central scar," and is normally associated with this entity. However, many other liver masses may present with a central element. Depending on its appearance, and the lesion itself, central elements can be essential, helpful, or confusing for diagnosis.

PET-CT scan is a valuable modality in the diagnosis of fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma: a case report and a summary of recent literature.

QJM 2011 Jun 14;104(6):477-83. Epub 2011 Apr 14.

Department of Cadres, The First Affiliated Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang, Liaoning Province, 110001, China.

We report a case of liver cancer with features consistent with fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma (FLHCC) detected by PET-CT scan. A 20-year-old female with a large liver tumor was diagnosed with 'malignant hepatic tumor' 2 years earlier and received five courses of transhepatic arterial chemoembolization (TACE) before she presented to our hospital with abdominal distension and mild pain at the right upper quadrant. Ultrasound and CT scan showed a large tumor in the right lobe of the liver. Read More

Haptocorrin as marker of disease progression in fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma.

Eur J Surg Oncol 2011 Jan;37(1):72-9

Department of Clinical Biochemistry, Aarhus University Hospital, Norrebrogade 44, Aarhus, Denmark.

Aims: No valid markers are routinely available to follow disease progression in patients with fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma (FLHCC). We report data suggesting that the vitamin B12 binding protein haptocorrin (HC) may prove a suitable marker.

Methods: We monitored a 15-year-old boy diagnosed to have FLHCC by measuring the common markers alanine aminotransaminase, alkaline phosphatase, lactate dehydrogenase, and bilirubin, as well as vitamin B12 (B12), and the forms of the B12 binding proteins. Read More

Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma: a case report with distinct radiological features.

J Gastrointest Cancer 2010 Mar;41(1):2-5

Department of Radiology, AHEPA University Hospital, Thessaloniki, Greece.

Introduction: We report a rare case of a 23-year-old male who presented with abdominal discomfort for 15 days. An ultrasound was performed which showed a hypoechoic, heterogenous mass in the left lobe of the liver and distended portal vein, followed by further investigation with computed tomography (CT), MRI, and MRA. Serum alpha-fetoprotein was not elevated and hepatitis B antigen was negative. Read More

Liver masses with central or eccentric scar.

Semin Ultrasound CT MR 2009 Oct;30(5):418-25

Department of Radiology, Osaka University, Graduate School of Medicine, Osaka, Japan.

Central or eccentric scar has been described in (most frequently) focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH), large hemangioma, and fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma, and moreover, a central scar may be rarely seen in conventional nonfibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma, (peripheral type) cholangiocarcinoma, and some hepatic metastases. Among the liver tumors with central or eccentric scar, differentiating FNH from other solid hepatic tumors is important because FNH usually requires no treatment. Multiphasic computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are useful for the differential diagnosis of liver tumors with central or eccentric scar. Read More

Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma.

Am J Gastroenterol 2009 Oct 28;104(10):2617-24; quiz 2625. Epub 2009 Jul 28.

Department of Gastroenterology, The First Affiliated Hospital of China Medical University, Shenyang 110001, Liaoning Province, China.

Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma (FHLCC) generally occurs in young individuals lacking a background of chronic liver disease and other risk factors for hepatocellular carcinoma. The clinical presentations of FLHCC are generally nonspecific, and the alpha-fetoprotein level is typically within the normal range in most cases. Imaging studies have a major role in clinical diagnosis, but pathology is the gold standard in confirming diagnosis. Read More

[Fibrolamellar liver carcinoma: report of two cases and review of the literature].

Rev Med Chil 2009 Mar 15;137(3):394-400. Epub 2009 Jun 15.

Instituto Oncológico Fundación Arturo López Pérez, Santiago,Chile.

Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma (FLC) is a rare histologic variant of hepatocellular carcinoma that appears most commonly in teenagers and young adults. The diagnosis is often made incidentally and surgical resection is the only curative treatment. Here we report two cases of incidental FLC involving a 19 year-old male, initially diagnosed with screening abdominal ultrasound, and a 14 year-old female that presented with abdominal pain.

Service de radiologie et imagerie médicale, Hôtel-Dieu, CHU de Clermont-Ferrand, boulevard Leon-Malfreyt, 63058 Clermont-Ferrand cedex, France.

In most cases, fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma has specific and distinctive histopathological features that distinguish it from hepatocellular carcinoma. Magnetic resonance imaging can provide characteristic features to obtain a diagnosis of this entity. We report a case of fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma with a radiological-pathological correlation in a 37 year-old man with chronic viral hepatitis B without cirrhosis who underwent right hepatectomy.

Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma in an infant and literature review.

J Pediatr Hematol Oncol 2008 Dec;30(12):968-71

Department of Oncology, Hospital San Joan de Déu, Universidad de Barcelona, Spain.

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a rare pediatric neoplasm exceptionally reported in infants and fibrolamellar hepatocarcinoma (FLC) a HCC variant. Controversy exists whether FLC has a better prognosis than classic HCC, although recent studies of children and young adults with FLC did not report a better outcome. We present a 4-month-old male infant without any related metabolic or infectious disease who developed a metastatic and multifocal FLC. Read More

"Preemptive" live donor liver transplantation for fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma: a case report.

Transplant Proc 2008 Dec;40(10):3806-7

Department of General, Visceral and Transplantation Surgery, University Hospital Essen, Essen, Germany.

Fibrolamellar (FL) hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a distinctive form of primary HCC that occurs principally in children and young adults. Although liver transplantation is not contraindicated for FL-HCC, noncirrhotic patients with large HCC tumors (including FL-HCCs) are not prioritized. Although hepatic resection is considered to be the primary treatment for FL-HCC, living donor liver transplantation is evolving into a potentially better alternative. Read More
