A 50-year-old woman with adrenal Cushing’s syndrome and chronic hepatitis C developed an acute exacerbation of chronic hepatitis C before adrenectomy. After administration of Glecaprevir/Pibrentasvir was started, her transaminase levels normalized promptly and a rapid virological response also was achieved. Then laparoscopic left adrenectomy was performed safely.
A 70-year-old woman was diagnosed poorly differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), lymphocyte rich. In this case, programmed cell death 1 expression was observed. Immune checkpoint inhibitor treatment may be effective in such cases, although there have been no reports of their use for poorly differentiated HCC, lymphocyte-rich.
It is sometimes difficult to distinguish between multiple cancers and metastases using only diagnostic imaging, particularly when multiple hypervascular tumors are found in multiple organs. In such cases, preoperative histological evaluation may be essential for determining the management of tumors.
