Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients with paraneoplastic syndromes have significantly higher levels of serum α-fetoprotein, larger tumor volume, and shorter survival than those without. Patients with hepatitis B virus–related HCC have a significantly higher prevalence of paraneoplastic syndromes than those with hepatitis C virus–related HCC.
