Abstract

Two cases of HCC with erythrocytosis are presented. A 58-year-old male with a huge tumor in the right lobe of the liver, showed a high concentration of hemoglobin and Epo, AFP. Right lobectomy with a part of diaphgram resection was performed. Histological findings of the specimen showed a poorly differentiated HCC. Erythrocytosis disappeared and the serum levels of Epo and AFP returned to the normal range after operation. There is no recurrence for 2 years after the operation. A 58-year-old male was admitted to our hospital because of a huge liver tumor at the right lobe. In laboratory findings, erythrocytosis and high level of AFP and Epo are detected. The extended right lobectomy of the liver was performed. Erythrocytosis disappeared and the serum levels of AFP returned to the normal range. 1 year and 1 month later, recurrent tumors appeared in the remnant liver and lung.
