Keywords:Hepatocellular, Carcinoma, Rare, Fibrolamellar, Young adult, Case report.
AbstractAmong the four histopathological variants of hepatocellular carcinoma, Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma (FLHCC) is a rare variant of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). It occurs in less than 1 % cases of hepatocellular carcinoma with distinct features as compared to classical HCC. It differs from typical HCC in terms of epidemiology, etiology, clinical presentation and prognosis. In this case report we are going to present a case of fibrolamellar variety of HCC in a 20-year young male with no history of previous liver disease and no characteristics features on Computed Tomography (CT) scan when compared with typical HCC. After discussing in multidisciplinary meeting, he underwent non anatomical liver resection which remained uneventful. Histopathology of the biopsy sample revealed FLHCC. No neoadjuvant therapy was given. Patient was kept on 1 year follow-up and no recurrence or metastasis occurred.
