Case Discussion

This is a presumptive diagnosis based on sonographic findings.

Hepatic hemangiomas are typically well defined hyperechoic lesions on ultrasound (this is not a specific finding). A small proportion (10%) however are hypoechoic. They may or may not show peripheral feeding vessels on color Doppler.
