A 65-year-old female patient with liver cirrhosis complicated with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) was treated with oral administration of 5'-DFUR (600 mg/day). The titer of serum α fetoprotein gradually decreased, and reduction of the hepatic tumor size was observed by abdominal computed tomography (CT) following 5'-DFUR treatment. HCC was obviously diminished since the start of 5'-DFUR administration and almost disappeared in fifteen months. This case suggests the treatment with 5'-DFUR for hepatocellular carcinoma is completely effective.
