A case is presented of fibrolamellar hepatocarcinoma in a 12 year-old male treated by liver transplantation; there is no evidence of tumoral recurrence at 28 months. Donos and receptor were ABO incompatible.

The immunosuppressive regimen used was cyclosporine A and low doses of steroids. Fibrolamellar hepatocarcinoma is an infrequent histologic variety that usually affects young people and is generally not associated with hepatitis B infection or cirrhosis. It is often a single tumor, is more susceptible to surgical resection than other varieties of hepatocarcinoma, and is characterized by a relatively unagressive tumoral biology.
