Abstract

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most frequent primary malignant tumor of the liver. Chronic hepatitis B infection is the most common cause of HCC. Bony metastasis of HCC is usually rare, in which the most common sites involved are vertebra, pelvis, rib and skull. Still rarer are metastasis to the chest wall. Metastatic HCC has an aggressive course and poor prognosis. Hereby, we report an unusual case of HCC metastasis which presented initially as swelling of the anterolateral aspect of the chest wall.
