Hepatic haemangiomatosis is a situation when the are multiple haemangiomas affecting the liver. When the lesions are spread throughout the liver, then this is termed diffuse hepatic haemangiomatosis (the latter situation typically occurs in infants 1).
In CT imaging, the presence of phleboliths may aid in diagnosis.
