Abstract

We report a case of de novo hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in a patient with recurrent hepatitis C (HCV) and cirrhosis 7 years after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). This is a previously unreported observation in the natural history of post-transplantantion HCV infection and reiterates the strong oncogenic potential of HCV.
