Abstract

A 74-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital to treat her hepatocellular carcinoma (stage IVB) with multiple lung metastases. She was treated with 3 times of hepatic arterial infusion of cisplatin powder (IA-call®). After the treatment, liver mass and lung tumors were disappeared and high levels of tumor markers (AFP and PIVKA-II) were markedly decreased. These data revealed that a complete response (CR) was obtained for her. She has still been maintained in CR for 2 years since the first treatment.
