Background/Aims: We report on a patient with lipoma of the liver associated with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and polycystic liver disease. Methods: Clinical features of a patient with lipoma, HCC and polycystic liver disease are presented. A right liver lobectomy was performed. Results: Histological examination revealed a poorly differentiated multicentric HCC, as well as bile duct cysts and an encapsulated tumor of adipose tissue. The postoperative course was uncomplicated. The patient died 4 years after surgery with local recurrence of HCC. Conclusion: We find the report to be of interest because of the unusual nature of this association and the low prevalence of lipoma of the liver. The association of liver polycystic disease with other types of tumor is discussed and the literature dealing with lipomas of the liver reviewed.
