Abstract

We report a rare case of primary squamous cell carcinoma of the liver associated with Hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibody positive liver cirrhosis. A 66-year-old male complained of general malaise. He had been suffering from HCV antibody positive liver cirrhosis for 10 years Physical examination revealed a jaundiced man with hepatomegaly and ascites. Ultrasonogram, CT, MRI revealed 5 cm space occupying lesion in the left hepatic lobe. The patient's condition progressively deteriorated, and he died on the 38th hospital day. Autopsy specimen showed whitish tumor measuring 5 × 5 × 7 cm in the left hepatic lobe Microscopically, the tumor was a moderately differentiated squamous cell carcinoma. The liver except for the tumor showed liver cirrhosis. Only 18 cases with primary squamous cell carcinoma of the liver have been reported in literature till now. There were no previous reports of hepatic squamous cell carcinoma with HCV antibody positive liver cirrhosis.
