Abstract: Primary hepatocellular carcinoma is a disease prevalent in the Asia-Pacific Region. Although epidemiological studies suggest that Hepatitis B and other hepatocarcinogens play important aetiological roles, close cohabitation and genetically susceptible individuals may also be more prone to develop the disease. Most of the reports of familial hepatocellular carcinoma have been on related siblings. This report is to describe the presence of the disease in a father and his son - a finding not previously reported in the literature. It is suggested that screening programmes should also include close family members.
