ABSTRACT
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common malignant tumors worldwide. Frequent sites of extrahepatic metastasis are the lung, adrenal gland, bone, etc. But, cutaneous metastasis from HCC is rare event. Several cases of subcutaneous seeding after percutaneous transhepatic biopsy or aspiration of liver were reported, however, most of these cases had solitary nodular lesion which was located at the biopsy site. We experienced a case of multiple cutaneous metastasis on whole body from HCC which was not related to percutaneous transhepatic biopsy of liver in a 34-year-old male patient. Thus, we report a case of multiple cutaneous metastasis from HCC with brief review of related literature. (Korean J Hepatol 1999;5:338-342)
