Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the leading primary malignancy of the liver and typically develops in the background of chronic liver disease, particularly those with cirrhosis due to viral hepatitis B and C. Ruptured tumor is the most serious complication of HCC primarily occurring in older patients with significant mortality rate. In this report, we present a case of acute abdomen with the features of impending shock as the first presentation of a spontaneously ruptured HCC in a previously healthy young man.
