Hepatic hemangioma


Hepatic hemangiomas are benign non-neoplastic hypervascular liver lesions which are usually an incidental finding on imaging. Most patients are asymptomatic.

On ultrasound they are typically well-defined hyperechoic lesions. In 10% of cases they are hypoechoic, especially in fatty liver where the parenchyma itself is of increased echogenicity as in our case. The CT features in this case are typical of hemangiomas.
