Hepatoid adenocarcinoma is an alpha-fetoprotein producing adenocarcinoma arising in numerous extra-hepatic organs. The diagnosis may be difficult because of the varied presentation but immunohistochemistries help make the diagnosis. The prognosis is often poor but in this report, we present a young female with hepatoid carcinoma who is doing well more than three years after her diagnosis.
