Abstract

A 63-year-old man with an unresectable multifocal hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) presented with upper abdominal discomfort, nausea and vomiting. We report a case of variant angina in a patient affected by unresectable HCC under chronic treatment with sorafenib. Spontaneous spasm occurred during cardiac catheterization and was revealed during coronary angiogram with the unusual feature of a retrograde transient filling of a contralateral branch.
