Hepatocellular carcinoma associated with lupoid hepatitis: A review of Japanese reports



Hepatocellular carcinoma associated with lupoid hepatitis: A review of Japanese reports



Surgery Today 25(9): 838-842



A 66-year-old woman was diagnosed as having lupoid hepatitis due to the presence of hypergammaglobulinemia, lupus erythematosus cells, and positivity for antinuclear, anti-DNA, and anti-smooth muscle antibodies. None of the serum hepatitis B markers were positive. Symptomatic relief was obtained by prednisolone administration. Five years after the diagnosis of lupoid hepatitis, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) was detected by ultrasonography and computed tomography, after which hepatectomy was performed. Although transcatheter arterial embolization was done on two occasions and repeat hepatectomy was performed twice for recurrent HCC, her liver function remained good with the prednisolone treatment. Antibody for hepatitis C virus has been negative since our first check in 1992. As of this writing, the patient has been alive and well 6 years and 2 months after the first hepatectomy. There have been no previous reports of 6-year survival after hepatectomy for HCC associated with lupoid hepatitis.
