Recurrent hepatocellular carcinoma is well described following liver transplantation. However, de novo hepatocellular carcinoma in the allograft is rare. We describe the clinical and pathological features of a case of de novo hepatocellular carcinoma arising in a cirrhotic allograft 9 years following transplantation for chronic hepatitis B.
