A 28-year-old female with a pregnant state of 29th gestational week was admitted because of nausea and vomiting. MRI showed a huge hepatocellular carcinoma. At the 36th gestational week, a normal delivery was done. Surgery of hepatocellular carcinoma was done at 20 days after delivery. After 22 months from the operation, pulmonary metastasis was found and resection of lung mass was done. About 3 years after resection, a low attenuating nodule was detected in the left atrial chamber of heart. We report a case of hepatocellular carcinoma with metastatic lesions to lung and heart in a pregnant woman. (Korean J Hepatol 2005;11:381-385)
