Abstract: BACKGROUND: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is rare in pregnancy but can enlarge rapidly under these circumstances. CASE OUTLINE: A 25-year-old woman was diagnosed with HCC of fibrolamellar type immediately post-partum. One year after liver resection the patient remains well. DISCUSSION: This is only the second report of fibrolamellar carcinoma occurring in pregnancy. Other types of hepatocellular carcinoma in pregnancy have generally demonstrated a poor outcome, probably secondary to hormonal changes and increased liver vascularity.
