Primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has a high incidence rate worldwide with an extremely grave prognosis, but, fortunately, accounts for only 2% of all cancers in the United States. Yet, a unique subset of HCC fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma (FLHC) is reported only from the United States. Five cases of FLHC from the University of Minnesota's 17 years of experience are reported and compared with the literature reports for FLHC, as well as contrasted to reports of HCC. The review of the literature is addressed for data evaluating FLHC as a distinct entity from HCC.
