Abstract

A complete response was obtained by interferon (IFN) therapy for hepatitis C virus (HCV)-related advanced chronic hepatitis after curative treatment of initial and recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The patient is alive 73 months after diagnosis of initial HCC and is in a tumor-free state 53 months after diagnosis of the last HCC. This case suggest that it is possible to suppress recurrence and to prolong the life of patients with HCV-related advanced chronic hepatitis, if a complete response is obtained by means of IFN therapy after the curative treatment of the recurrent HCC.<br>(Internal Medicine 41: 202-206, 2002)
