LOSADA M, Héctor et al. Hepatocarcinoma with sarcomatoid transformation: Case report. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2007, vol.135, n.6, pp.768-772. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872007000600012.

Hepatocarcinoma with sarcomatoid transformation is uncommon. It presents clinically with ¡eucocytosis and fever, resembling a liver abscess. We report a 40 year-old male that presented pain in the right upper quadrant and fever. Abdominal imaging showed an hypodense image in the liver that resembled a liver abscess. The patient was subjected to a percutaneous drainage obtaining 150 ml of an hemorrhagic fluid whose culture was negative. The clinical picture persisted and the patient was subjected to a right hepatectomy. The pathological study of the surgical piece disclosed a hepatocarcinoma with sarcomatoid transformation. The patient was discharged sixteen days after surgery
