BACKGROUND: Beside hepatocellular carcinoma, metastasis, and cholangiocarcinoma, the imaging findings of other relatively uncommon hepatic lesions are less discussed in the literature. Imaging diagnosis of these lesions is a daily challenge. In this article, we review the imaging characteristics of these neoplasms. METHODS: From January 2003 to December 2014, 4746 patients underwent liver biopsy or hepatic surgical resection in our hospital. We reviewed the pathological database retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: Primary Hepatic Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma is an extremely rare tumor of vascular origin. PATIENTS: In this work we present clinical data and long term results of eight patients who were surgically treated in our institution. Liver transplantation was performed in five patients (four cadaveric and one living related) and major liver resection in three patients. Three patients are alive with recurrent tumor. After a median follow-up of 100 months (48-266) all patients are alive...

A 49-year-old Japanese man had multiple huge masses (max. size 60 mm diameter) in his liver. These tumors were pathologically diagnosed by tumor biopsy as epithelioid hemangioendotheliomas of the liver. In this case, multiple liver tumors existed in both lobes. Also this patient did not agree to receive surgical resection including liver transplantation. Chemotherapy with sorafenib at a dose of 400 mg/body twice a day was started. About 6 months later, CT findings revealed that these tumors were shrinking slightly; 33 months later, the tumors obviously showed a partial response in accordance with the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST)...

To investigate the typical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) features of hepatic epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (HEH), the CT and MRI findings of 14 histopathologically confirmed cases of HEH were retrospectively analyzed. Non-contrast and dynamic contrast-enhanced scans were conducted in all cases. A total of 229 lesions were detected in the 14 cases. All cases were classified as one of three types: (i) Solitary nodular type (1 case, 7%); (ii) multifocal nodular type (11 cases, 79%); or (iii) diffuse type (2 cases, 14%)...

Hypercalcemia caused by tumor production of PTH-rp occurs most often in cases of squamous cell carcinoma of the lung, aerodigestive tract cancer, gynecological cancer and lymphoma. We report an exceptional case of PTH-rp related to a hepatic hemangioendothelioma. A 70 years-old male admitted for deterioration of the general state. The laboratory investigations revealed hypercalcemia, related to tumor production of PTH-rp. Imaging revealed tumoral hepatic lesions. Histopathological study and immunohistochemistry showed diffuse response for CD31 marker, CK20 (+) with CK7 (-) and hepatocyt antigen (-)...

We aim to investigate the pathological characteristics of liver biopsies and their implications for the prognosis of hepatic epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (HEHE). Clinical data of eight patients (5 male, 3 female) with HEHE were analyzed retrospectively. Expression of CD34, FVIII, AE1/AE3, Hepa-par1, GPC3, CK19 and the proliferation index marker Ki-67 were determined by immunohistochemical staining. The clinical pathological features and effects of treatment on prognosis were investigated. Among the eight patients, four did not exhibit significant symptoms, while four showed symptoms such as abdominal distension, aversion to greasy food and mild fever...

A 47-year-old woman with a single-nodule hepatic tumor was referred to our hospital. She had no symptoms. The tumor was located at the surface of the right lobe of the liver; it showed peripheral low signal intensity on a magnetic resonance imaging apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) map, and an influx of blood flow into the peripheral area of the tumor at the early vascular phase on perflubutane microbubble (Sonazoid(®)) contrast-enhanced (CE) ultrasonography. Since we suspected a malignant tumor, the patient underwent surgical resection...

Liver transplantation as a curative treatment method can be used for selected primary liver tumours, in particular for hepatocellular carcinoma and rather rare semi-malignant tumours such as epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, further for infiltration of liver by metastatic neuroendocrine tumours (provided that metastases are only located in the liver and the primary tumour was removed) and for benign tumours (hemangiomas and adenomas) with oppression symptoms and size progression. Cholangiocarcinoma is not indicated for liver transplantation at the CKTCH Brno...

Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EHE) is a rare vascular tumor with variable biological and clinical behavior. There is increasing experience with liver transplantation (LiTx) for hepatic EHE, even in cases of extrahepatic disease localization. Until now, no cases of lung transplantation (LuTx) had been reported for pulmonary EHE. This report describes three cases of EHE with multifocal disease in patients who underwent either serial or combined LiTx and LuTx.

Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EHAE) is a malignant vascular tumor derived from endothelial cell often misdiagnosed as Hepatic carcinoma on the basis of radiological features. Till now etiology of this rare curiosity is unknown but it is related with use of oral contraceptives pills (OCP), liver trauma, exposure to vinyl chloride and hepatitis. We herein report on a case which failed to be diagnosed by cytopathology, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Patient was a 46 yr old man presented with abdominal distension for a month...

Alternative lengthening of telomeres (ALT) is a mechanism using homologous recombination to maintain telomere length and sustain limitless replicability of cancer cells. Recently, ALT has been found to be associated with inactivation of either α-thalassemia/mental retardation syndrome X-linked (ATRX) or death domain-associated (DAXX) protein. In this study, 119 tumors (88 angiosarcomas, 11 epithelioid hemangioendotheliomas, and 20 Kaposi sarcomas) were analyzed to determine the ALT status, its relationship to loss of ATRX/DAXX expression, and the clinicopathological features...
