Identified two hypoattenuating hepatic masses:
- A small and round one, located in hepatic segment VIII.
- Another one, larger and with lobulated margins, located in segments V and VI.
Both have progressive enhancement in the contrast phases, globular and centripetal enhancement. With homogenisation in late stages.
Most haemangiomas are unique and measuring less than 4 cm in diameter. Giant hemangioma is defined as one with more than 4 cm in diameter. The size of the majority of haemangiomas remains unchanged with time.
The diagnosis was assumed by CT and ultrasound features.
