Androgen-associated hepatoma in a hemodialysis patient.

Abstract

A patient on hemodialysis treatment developed hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after long-term therapy with androgenic anabolic steroids. The tumor progressed very rapidly, and there was no evidence of regression despite discontinuation of the drug. In view of the evidence of an increased of malignancy in patients with chronic uremia and hemodialysis, and of the higher frequency of HCC correlated to treatment with C17-alkylated anabolic steroids, it is necessary to further evaluate the efficiency of this treatment in the aforementioned group of patients.
