    Abstract

    We report on 2 patients from our institution, the National University of Malaysia Hospital (HUKM), who presented with a chronic history of radicular back pain and neurological deficits clinically depicting spinal cord compression. In the first case, this clinical picture was substantiated by radiological evidence whereas in the second, radiological investigations revealed spinal nerve root compression. The aetiology of these conditions was traced to a primary hepatocellular carcinoma. The spinal spread of this tumour and the differences in its presentation in these 2 cases are discussed.
