Abstract

Sorafenib is the only validated pharmacological treatment option for patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the context of Child-Pugh class A liver function. Effective and safe systemic treatments for advanced disease with severe underlying cirrhosis (Child-Pugh class B and C) are not yet available. A few reports have described capecitabine as an option after failure of sorafenib or for patients who were not eligible for clinical trials. Here, we present a case of good response to low dose capecitabine in a patient with advanced HCC.
