Giant Pedunculated Hepatic Hemangioma: A Case Report and Literature Review

Abstract

Hepatic hemangioma is the most common benign hepatic tumor, and most of them are small in size and asymptomatic. Giant hepatic hemangiomas are uncommon, but pedunculated giant hemangiomas are even rarer and often difficult to diagnose because of their exophytic development. We report here on a 48-year-old man with a symptomatic pedunculated giant hepatic hemangioma and hepatic angiomatosis, mimicking a gastric gastrointestinal stromal tumor with liver metastases. The preoperative diagnosis was suspected on imaging including CT scan and MRI. The patient was successfully operated (left hepatic lobectomy), without any complication, and the pathological analysis confirmed the diagnosis. We reviewed the English literature, and to our knowledge, our case represents the largest case reported so far when compared with the 19 other informative cases.
