A recurrence was detected in the remaining left lobe of a patient who underwent regular right hepatectomy 9 years ago because of HCC (hepatocellular carcinoma). Left lateral segmentectomy was performed on the patient. Following right and left hepatectomies, the patient survives with hyperthrophied segment IV. We think that the FHCC (fibrolamellar HCC) that recurred in the opposite lobe 9 years after is a secondary primary tumor. The patient received no adjuvant therapy after the second resection and no recurrences were seen in the remaining segment IV during the 36-month follow-up.
