Management of hepatic haemangioma in pregnancy.

BMJ Case Rep 2022 Jun 10;15(6). Epub 2022 Jun 10.

Surgical Oncology, University of Rochester Wilmot Cancer Institute, Rochester, New York, USA

Hepatic cavernous haemangioma is a benign tumour of vascular origin found within the liver. Often incidentally diagnosed, the management of these vascular masses is frequently determined by the size of the mass and symptoms associated with its compression of adjacent structures. Tumours >10 cm are known as giant haemangiomas and are associated with increased risks of compression symptoms, coagulopathies and haemorrhage. Read More

Classification of hepatic cavernous hemangioma or hepatocellular carcinoma using a convolutional neural network model.

J Gastrointest Oncol 2022 Apr;13(2):787-791

Department of Interventional Radiology, Tangdu Hospital, Fourth Military Medical University, Xi'an, China.

Background: Computed tomography (CT) is a common imaging technique for diagnosis of liver tumors. However, the intensity similarity on non-contrast CT images is small, making it difficult for radiologists to visually identify hepatic cavernous hemangioma (HCH) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Recently, convolutional neural networks (CNN) have been widely used in the study of medical image classification because more discriminative image features can be extracted than the human eye.

Paediatric focal nodular hyperplasia: A case study of typical contrast-enhanced ultrasound findings with quantitative analysis and correlated with magnetic resonance imaging.

Ultrasound 2021 May 9;29(2):128-134. Epub 2020 Aug 9.

Department of Radiology, King's College Hospital, London, UK.

Introduction: Focal nodular hyperplasia, a benign liver tumour, is the second most common focal benign liver lesion, after a cavernous haemangioma. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound is used increasingly for the diagnostic work up and follow-up of focal liver lesions in adults, but is particularly valuable in the paediatric population, with the ability to reduce radiation and the nephrotoxic contrast agents used in computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging. Confident recognition of focal nodular hyperplasia is important; it is benign, usually asymptomatic, of no clinical significance, of no clinical consequence or malignant potential. Read More

Liver Transplantation for Rapidly Progressive Giant Hepatic Hemangioma With Diffuse Hemangiomatosis.

Exp Clin Transplant 2021 10 1;19(10):1106-1109. Epub 2021 Feb 1.

From The Institute of Liver Disease and Transplantation, Dr. Rela Institute and Medical Centre, Bharath Institute of Higher Education and Research, Chennai, India.

Cavernous hemangiomas are the most common benign tumors of the liver and are usually asymptomatic. On the other hand, giant hemangioma and diffuse hepatic hemangiomatosis may become symptomatic by causing compression on adjacent structures, rupture, or consumptive coagulopathy. The coexistence of these 2 entities in an adult is extremely rare, and the literature, especially on their management, is sparse. Read More

The humbling hemangioma: uncommon CT and MRI imaging features and mimickers of hepatic hemangiomas.

Clin Imaging 2021 Jun 5;74:55-63. Epub 2021 Jan 5.

NYU Langone Health, Department of Radiology, United States of America.

Cavernous hemangiomas are among the most common liver lesions encountered in abdominal imaging. While classical imaging characteristics usually aid the radiologist in confidently arriving at its diagnosis, atypical hemangiomas can prove to be difficult to distinguish from other more worrisome hepatic lesions such as metastases and hepatocellular carcinoma. Furthermore, some malignant lesions can display features that simulate hemangiomas. Read More
