Hepatocellular carcinoma is a common primary hepatic malignancy in the Asian countries. The prognosis of metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma is very poor if left untreated. Despite the rare occurrence, sinonasal metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma usually implies an advanced disease stage with dismal outcome. Herein we present a case of metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma involving the nasal cavity. This 55-year-old male patient refused standard therapy after the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma. After a palliative excision for the nasal tumor, the patient died of multiple metastatic diseases. A special consideration should be given to such unusual manifestations of extrahepatic metastases. Promptly clinical evaluation and appropriate intervention for symptomatic palliation are necessary for these terminally ill patients.
