The authors report one case of primary hepatic neuroendocrine carcinoma associated with multiple liver metastases. A patient was a 41-year-old female. In 2010, B-ultrasound examination revealed that there were multiple space-occupying lesions in the liver, and hepatic hemangiomas was considered to be the diagnosis. Then, the patient was followed up regularly. In Aug. 2013, B-ultrasound examination indicated that the hepatic lesions were significantly enlarged. Multi-detector CT scanning and MRI examination were performed, and still the diagnosis of multiple hepatic hemangiomas was suggested. On CT and MRI the lesion presented as a well-circumscribed hypervascular tumor with “fast-in and slow-out” enhancement pattern. On MRI, the lesion was characterized by multiple nodules. Needle biopsy was carried out, and the pathological and immunohistochemical diagnosis was metastatic neuroendocrine tumor. Systemic examination did not find the primary lesion. Therefore, primary hepatic neuroendocrine carcinoma associated with intra- hepatic metastases was diagnosed. The patient was treated with transcatheter arterial chemoembolization. The drugs used were 100 mg Oxaliplatin+one bottle of gelatin sponge particles(300-500μm)+10 ml iodized oil, and micro-pump infusion of 100 mg oxaliplatin(99 mg/h) through catheter was also employed. Clinically, primary hepatic neuroendocrine carcinoma is extremely rare. In combination with the medical literatures, the authors attempt to make a preliminary discussion on the clinical characteristics, differential diagnosis, treatment and prognosis of primary hepatic neuroendocrine carcinoma.

OBJECTIVE: To observe and discuss the dynamic changes of interleukin-2 (IL-2) and soluble interleukin-2 receptor (sIL-2R) and their significance in the patients with primary liver cancer after transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) therapy combined with Jinglong Capsule. METHODS: A total of 48 patients with primary liver cancer, who failed to be treated by major surgery, were randomly divided into two groups: Jinlong Capsule group (TACE therapy plus Jinlong Capsule) and control group (TACE therapy alone). There were 24 cases in each group. The levels of peripheral blood IL-2 and slL-2R were measured before the first TACE and 1, 7 and 15 days after the second TACE respectively by using double-antibody sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. The data from Jinlong Capsule group were compared with those from the control group. RESULTS: The level of sIL-2R in Jinlong Capsule group was significantly lower than that in the control group (P<0.05), while the level of IL-2 was significantly higher than that in the control group (P<0.05). CONCLUSION: Jinlong Capsule can significantly improve the lymphocyte function of the patients with primary liver cancer after TACE. The levels of IL-2 and sIL-2R can be considered as the valuable parameters for evaluating the effects on primary liver cancer, and Jinlong Capsule is helpful for the patients with primary liver cancer.
