Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma is a rare entity that represent between 1% to 5% of all hepatocarcinomas. Tipically affects younger patients (10 to 30 year of age) of both sexes, without underlying liver disease. In 50% of the cases the diagnosis is made in advanced stages of the disease. We present the case of a male patient of 15 years of age, healthy, who consulted due to an abdominal tumor of 3 months evolution, epigastric pain and weight loss. The imaging studies report a tumor that replaces the left lobe with heterogeneous enhancement in the arterial phase that infiltrates the left suprahepatic vein. Injuries in segment V and VIII. Extensive lymphadenopathy in the liver liver. Peritoneal and subpleural nodule. Hepatic biopsy puncture was performed confirming fibrolaminar hepatocarcinoma. Start once specific treatment.
