Bone metastasis is the third most common extrahepatic metastasis from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), following lung and lymph node metastasis. Although transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) is widely used for the treatment for unresectable HCC in the liver, its effects on bone metastasis from HCC have not been well described in past literature. We report a case of a patient with a metastatic bone lesion from an HCC treated with TACE. After the procedure, the patient's pain and narcotic requirement significantly decreased without major complications.
