Background: With the recent popularization of living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT), it has become important to provide treatment for comorbidities in recipients. We report the case of a patient who was successfully treated with LDLT, followed by left upper lobectomy for lung cancer concomitant with decompensated liver cirrhosis. Case Report: A 67-year-old female was admitted for treatment for severe liver cirrhosis. The lung cancer was identified preoperatively using computed tomography. We initially performed LDLT to improve liver function and coagulopathy; the patient was discharged postoperatively on day 39 without complication. Three months after LDLT, we performed a left upper lobectomy. Results: The patient's postoperative course was uneventful and she was discharged after 11 days. Conclusion: We conclude that an aggressive and appropriate surgical strategy, including LDLT, is an effective curative treatment in patients with controllable malignancy, concomitant with severe liver dysfunction.
