Axial image in arterial phase (A) and portal phase: axial (B), oblique (C) and sagittal (D) reconstructions, show a dysmorphic liver with irregular contours. Lipiodol fixation with liquefaction are estimated at 90 % of the tumor volume. There is gaseous croissant in the lesion with adjacent pleural effusion (arrow). Notice the partial thrombosis of portal vein extended to its right branch (arrow head). The important ascites associated suggest the decompensation and hepatic failure.
