Primary Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Liver

Primary Squamous Cell carcinoma (SCC) of the liver is a very rare diagnosis with limited reported cases in the current literature. The pathogenesis of the disease is unclear, but is generally considered to be correlated with the long-term inflammation or metaplasia of biliary epithelial cells and congenital cyst of the liver. The current viewpoint is that surgical resection of the tumor, preoperative or postoperative subsidiary chemoembolization, radiotherapy and generalized chemotherapy may extend a patient’s survival.The prognosis is extremely poor with few patients surviving after 12 months, irrespective of treatment.Here, we report a case of hepatic primary squamous cell carcinoma.
