Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is rapidly fatal neoplasm of high worldwide prevalence. Fibrolamellar carcinoma (FLC), a variant of HCC, lacks the dismal prognosis of ordinary hepatocellular carcinoma (o-HCC) and is characterized by diagnostic histological and cytological appearance. Although FLC is quite uncommon, it accounts for a relatively large proportion of this malignancy in young adults. We report herewith a case of a 38 year old male diagnosed by Ultrasound guided Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (USG FNAC) as FLC and confirmed by histopathology.
