|Abstract: ||Metastases of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) to the bones are common
but bone metastases of hepatocellular carcinoma in the presence of a
normal liver are an uncommon entity. A 50-year-old male patient
presented with a rapidly growing tumour on the sternum. Biopsy of the
lesion showed metastatic sternal tumour from a primary hepatocellular
carcinoma. Radiological evaluation however, failed to detect a primary
lesion in the liver. Bone metastases of hepatocellular carcinoma
localized to the chest wall in the presence of a normal liver are
scarcely reported as anecdotal case reports in the literature.|
