Ruibin Li, Guangyao Wu, Rui Wang
The aim of the present study was to investigate the significance and values of 3.0T diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) to differentially diagnose benign and malignant space-occupying liver lesions. A total of 91 patients with liver space-occupying lesions (145 lesions) were admitted into Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University (Wuhan, China) from November 2015 to May 2016. Routine scanning, DWI and high-resolution T2-weighted imaging using spin-echo echo-planar imaging were performed on all patients, to compare the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values of three regions of interest in lesions with normal liver tissue...

Liver hemangiomas are the most common benign primary tumors of the liver. Due to their high prevalence, incidental finding of hemangiomas during radiological workup of oncologic patients is not uncommon. We present the case of a patient diagnosed of an ovarian immature teratoma and hepatic lesions with typical radiological appearance of hemangiomas that decreased in size during adjuvant chemotherapy with BEP regimen (cisplatin, etoposide and bleomycin). Chemotherapy-induced shrinkage of hepatic hemangiomas can mimic the response of liver metastases to chemotherapy and may induce erroneous interpretations...

RATIONALE: Hemangioma of the liver is a benign hepatic tumor, more common in women than in men, which is typically asymptomatic, solitary, and incidentally discovered. Atypical hemangioma is a variant of hepatic hemangioma with atypical imaging finding features on CT and MRI that can be confused with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) and mixed hepatocellular cholangiocarcinoma (HCC-CC). PATIENT CONCERNS: We report a case of atypical hepatic hemangioma mimicking HCC-CC: A 59-year-old man was referred to our hospital for a hepatic lesion that was 4...

Infantile hepatic hemangioma (IHH) and mesenchymal hamartoma (MH) form the first and second most common benign hepatic tumors in children. In this case report, we present a newborn child in whom a growing hepatic mass was discovered at the age of 7 days. She suffered also from anemia, respiratory and renal failure. No signs of heart disease or cutaneous lesions were detected. Alpha-fetoprotein was elevated for her age (3562.2 ng/ml). Imaging studies showed multifocal large cystic lesions associated with heterogeneous small solid lesions with arterial enhancement of the liver...

RATIONALE: Hepatic hemangioma, a benign liver tumor, can rarely spontaneously rupture and hemorrhage, which is then associated with significant mortality. The diagnosis of internal hemorrhage is challenging and the management is disputed. PATIENT CONCERNS: We describe the case of a 52-year-old female patient with chief complaints of fever and anemia, with no history of recent trauma. DIAGNOSES: Ultrasound suggested the possibility of a liver abscess and computed tomography (CT) examination revealed a giant space occupying lesion (SOL) (approximately 16 cm) in the right hepatic lobe, indicating a hepatic tumor or abscess...

Hepatic small vessel neoplasm (HSVN) is a recently described vascular neoplasm of the adult liver. The neoplastic cells are positive for markers of vascular lineage (CD31, CD34, FLI-1). The distinctive morphology and infiltrative borders separate HSVN from benign vascular tumors such as cavernous hemangioma, while lack of atypical morphologic features, low to absent mitotic activity and low proliferation index distinguish it from malignant vascular tumors such as epithelioid hemangioendothelioma and angiosarcoma...

A staging FDG PET/CT was performed for a 43-year-old woman who was suspected to have splenic malignancy with multiple hepatic metastases revealed on CT images. The PET/CT images showed the masses and nodules of spleen had mildly increased uptake of FDG, whereas the uptake by the hepatic lesions was slightly higher. However, the pathologic evaluation demonstrated that splenic lesion was malignant as angiosarcoma, but the hepatic lesions were benign as hemangiomas.

CONTEXT: Cysts arising from the hepatobiliary tree are a group of heterogeneous lesions with regard to pathogenesis, clinical presentation, and radiological finding. They can be intrahepatic or extrahepatic, developmental, secondary to infective/inflammatory etiologies, as well as neoplastic. This study was conducted to determine the spectrum of hepatobiliary cysts in surgically intervened cases, with regard to their prevalence, histological spectrum, and clinicoradiological correlation, wherever possible...

BACKGROUND: A hepatic sclerosed hemangioma (HSH) is a very rare benign liver tumor. The correct preoperative diagnosis of HSH is very difficult because its features of imaging are similar to those of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma or colorectal liver metastasis. CASE PRESENTATION: We experienced five patients who were diagnosed histologically with HSH. The preoperative diagnoses were HSH in two patients, cavernous hemangioma in one, intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma in one, and colorectal liver metastasis in one...

Infantile hepatic hemangioma (IHH) is the most common benign hepatic tumor of infancy. It is characterized by rapid proliferation in the first year of life, followed by slow involution during childhood. Presentation can range from asymptomatic to severe, high-output congestive heart failure (CHF). The purpose of this article is to review the case of an infant with an atypical presentation of IHH. It also addresses pathophysiology, diagnosis, management, and multidisciplinary team care.

Transient congenital hypothyroidism (CH) refers to a temporary deficiency of thyroid hormone identified after birth, with low thyroxine (T4) and elevated thyrotropin (TSH), which later recovers to improved thyroxine production, typically in first few months of infancy. Approximately 17% to 40% of children diagnosed with CH by newborn screening (NBS) programs were later determined to have transient hypothyroidism. Causes of transient CH are prematurity, iodine deficiency, maternal thyrotropin receptor blocking antibodies, maternal intake of anti-thyroid drugs, maternal or neonatal iodine exposure, loss of function mutations and hepatic hemangiomas...

Liver lesions are often incidentally detected on ultrasound examination and may be incompletely characterized, requiring further imaging. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States for liver lesion characterization. CEUS has the ability to characterize focal liver lesions and has been shown to be superior to color Doppler and power Doppler ultrasound in the detection of tumor vascularity. Differentiating benign from malignant liver lesions is essential to characterizing liver lesions...

A number of benign and malignant neoplasms may arise from the vascular elements within the liver parenchyma. Lesions discussed in this article include angiosarcoma, epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, solitary fibrous tumor (hemangiopericytoma), infantile, and cavernous hemangiomas. Despite a common theme of vascular origin, the pathologic and imaging appearance of these entities can be heterogeneous. Angiosarcomas are bizarrely enhancing, highly aggressive tumors, which often present with metastatic disease...

BACKGROUND: Hemangiomas are common cutaneous findings on healthy infants. These vascular malformations are generally benign, though in rare circumstances they can potentially be fatal. This is particularly true when the hemangiomas are large or numerous and occurring in visceral organs. Previously unrecognized visceral hemangiomas are part of the differential for any neonate presenting unexpectedly in shock. CASE REPORT: A 10-day-old neonate presented to the pediatric emergency department with difficulty breathing...

Recent studies have shown that radiofrequency (RF) ablation therapy is a safe, feasible, and effective procedure for hepatic hemangiomas, even huge hepatic hemangiomas. RF ablation has the following advantages in the treatment of hepatic hemangiomas: minimal invasiveness, definite efficacy, high safety, fast recovery, relatively simple operation, and wide applicability. It is necessary to formulate a widely accepted consensus among the experts in China who have extensive expertise and experience in the treatment of hepatic hemangiomas using RF ablation, which is important to standardize the application of RF ablation for the management of hepatic hemangiomas, regarding the selection of patients with suitable indications to receive RF ablation treatment, the technical details of the techniques, therapeutic effect evaluations, management of complications, etc...
