Patient Data

Age: 50 years
Gender: Female

The hepatic attenuation value is less than that of the spleen, suggesting fatty liver.

At least six masses in the liver show early peripheral nodular enhancement with centripetal filling and delayed blood pools.

Due to prior resection, the uterus and ovaries are not seen at the anatomical location.

Degenerative changes such as osteophytosis are seen in the lumbar spine.
Grade I spondylolisthesis of L5 on S1 is present with bilateral spondylolysis.

Case Discussion

Enhancement patterns of the hepatic masses are typical for haemangiomatosis.
