Abstract We report a solitary intraperitoneal recurrence in a long-term survivor after rupture of hepatocellular carcinoma. Ultrasonography demonstrated the finding of a lobulated mass with a “mosaic” appearance. The patient underwent resection of this implant and is currently disease free. We emphasize the importance of periodic surveillance of disseminated metastases of this condition.
