Flash filling hepatic haemangioma

Case contributed by Dr Henry Knipe

Presentation

Liver lesion for follow-up.

Patient Data

Age: 70 years
Gender: Male

Within liver segment V is a non-contrast hypodense lesion, that is arterially-enhancing 13 mm lesion, which remains hyperdense to liver parenchyma and isodense to blood pool on portal venous and delayed phases.

Case Discussion

This liver lesion was identified incidentally on a prior CT. It is arterially enhancing, with density following the blood pool in the portal venous and delayed phases. Being small, it does not show the peripheral enhancing with central filling typical of haemangiomas, hence it is called a flashing filling hepatic haemangioma (a.k.a. hepatic venous malformation)
