Abstract

We report herein the cases of two Japanese patients with typical fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma treated at our institute. The first patient was a 19-year-old man with no hepatitis B or C viral infection and a normal, noncirrhotic liver in the nontumorous area. The second was a 36-year-old woman with no viral infection and a noncirrhotic liver in the nontumorous area. The clinicopathology, imaging appearances, and histology of both cases were similar to reports from the United States.
