Abstract Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a major cancer in Korea, typically has a poor prognosis, and constitutes the majority of primary hepatic malignancies. It is the number one cause of death among people in their 50s in Korea. The five-year survival rate of liver cancer is poor; at 18.9\%. Efforts to increase the survival rate through early diagnosis of HCC and optimal treatments are keenly needed. Western guideline for the management of HCC were developed, but these guidelines are somewhat unsuitable for Korean patients. Thus, the Korean Liver Cancer Study Group (KLCSG) and the National Cancer Center (NCC), Korea jointly produced the Clinical Practice Guidelines for HCC for the first time in Korea in 2003. Owing to medical advances over the following six years, diagnosis and treatment of HCC has changed considerably. As more national and foreign data are accumulated, KLCSG and NCC, Korea recently revised the Clinical Practice Guidelines for HCC. Forty or more specialists in the field of hepatology, general surgery, radiology and radiation oncology participated, and meticulously reviewed national and foreign papers, and collected opinions through advisory committee conferences. These multidisciplinary, evidence-based guidelines summarized diagnosis, surgical resection, liver transplantation, local treatments, transarterial chemoembolization, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, preemptive antiviral treatments, and response evaluation of HCC. These Korean guidelines are expected to be useful for clinical management of and research on HCC. This article was published in Korean J Hepatol and referenced in Journal of Cancer Science & Therapy
