Abstract

A 56-year-old man had a lung metastasis from hepatocellular carcinoma 4.7 cm x 3.4 cm in size located directly adjacent to the pulmonary hilar vessels. The tumor was treated with radiofrequency ablation combined with earlier bronchial arterial chemoembolization and subsequent radiation therapy. A complete remission of the tumor has been observed for 6 months since completion of therapy. Considering that complete treatment of such an intermediate-sized tumor adjacent to the large vessels is usually difficult with radiofrequency ablation alone, this result suggests a possible role for combined therapy for pulmonary neoplasms.
