Metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma of the heart. A case report
A metastatic tumour growing in the heart more than 2 years after total removal of the primary hepatic growth is a rare event. Jaundice as a result of bile production by the metastasis is most unusual. The primary tumour did not recur in the regenerated liver. Features which may prove useful in making a clinical diagnosis are briefly considered. Death resulted from a thrombo-embolus from the right atrium lodging in the opening of the tricuspid valve.
