Due to significant improvements in morbidity and mortality, surgery with curative intent is now the standard of care for patients with colorectal liver metastases who are surgical candidates. As a result, highly accurate preoperative per-lesion diagnosis is crucial. However, in some instances, this remains limited with standard techniques, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with conventional contrast agents. Delayed retention of contrast of fibrotic liver metastases on MRI with extracellular contrast agents may mimic the late retention of contrast in hemangiomas and represent a diagnostic pitfall that limits diagnosis...

An 83-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of a space-occupying lesion (SOL) in the liver. Enhanced computed tomography (CT) showed a nodule measuring 20mm in size in the posterosuperior segment of the right hepatic lobe (S7) and another nodule measuring 14mm in size in the anterosuperior segment of the right hepatic lobe (S8). The margins of these nodules showed faint enhancement in the arterial phase and presented as low-density areas in the equilibrium phase. The S8 SOL could not be easily identified using ultrasonography (US)...

Hepatic hemangiomas are the most common benign liver tumor of infancy and are divided into two main types: rapidly involuting congenital hemangiomas (RICH) and non-involuting congenital hemangiomas. RICH typically involute by 12 months and are often asymptomatic. Surgical resection is rare. Indications for surgical resection include rupture, rapid growth, consumptive coagulopathy, and abdominal pain. We present two patients from different institutions who both developed clinically significant ascites as the RICH involuted, prompting surgical resection...

A 73-year-old woman with massive ascites associated with a giant hepatic mass accompanied by arterio-portal (AP) shunt was admitted to our hospital. Based on contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) and angiography findings, hepatic hemangioma with AP shunt and ascites due to portal hypertension was diagnosed. Transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) by N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (NBCA) was performed without complications. The patient's ascites disappeared, and her liver function test results improved after the treatment...

Hypercalcemia can be hazardous during pregnancy, most cases being due to primary hyperparathyroidism. We report a case of hypercalcemia with suppressed PTH levels necessitating treatment with bisphosphonates during pregnancy. A 38-year-old woman at the 26th week gestation was admitted because of symptomatic hypercalcemia. She did not take any medication that could influence her calcium levels. Physical examination was unremarkable. Laboratory tests on admission were: calcium 12.7 mg/dL (8.5-10.5 mg/dL), phosphorus 1...

Extracardiac uptake on SPECT MPI, seen with physiologic radiotracer distribution, benign or malignant neoplasm, infection, inflammation, or granulomatous disease, may confound the accuracy of MPI or lead to unsuspected pathology. A 38-year-old woman with end-stage renal disease on hemodialysis had SPECT MPI for renal transplant preoperative risk stratification, showing left anterior descending artery ischemia and an intense extracardiac soft tissue focus adjacent to the diaphragmatic right ventricle concerning for focal infection related to prior coronary or gastric surgeries or tumor...

Cavernous hemangiomas are not true vascular tumors, but rather are slow-flow venous malformations (VMs). They are present at birth as nonproliferating vascular birthmarks composed of anomalous ectatic venous channels. VMs have often been incorrectly called cavernous hemangiomas and cavernous angiomas. These terms have for a long time lead to confusion with the more common proliferating or true hemangioma of infancy. VM has been reported to arise at all sites including skin and subcutaneous layers of the head and neck, face, extremities, liver, gastrointestinal tract, and even the thymus...

REVIEW
Leann Kania, Flavius Guglielmo, Donald Mitchell
Few things in radiology are "pathognomonic" in their appearance or presentation. However, having an awareness of those findings which are specific to a certain entity is important when interpreting imaging studies. These classic findings can be identified with many imaging modalities, but no modality provides as many recognizable observations as an MRI. This results from the large variety of pulse sequences that provide high contrast resolution, prior to and following contrast administration. In this article, the most classically recognized abdominal findings are presented including the following: Liver: Cyst, hemangioma, focal nodular hyperplasia, hepatic adenoma, hemosiderosis, hepatocellular carcinoma...

Hepatic small vessel hemangioma represents a distinct yet very rare pathologic entity of the liver. The entity has also been in the past referred to as adult capillary hemangioma of the liver and congenital noninvoluting hemangioma. Imaging findings are not definitive and biopsy or resection is ultimately necessary. Pathologically these represent vasoformative abnormalities with infiltrative margins that can potentially mimic hepatic angiosarcoma. Immunohistochemistry can help differentiate hepatic small vessel hemangioma from angiosarcoma...

BACKGROUND: Distinguishing perihilar cholangiocarcinoma (PHC) from benign forms of sclerosing cholangitis affecting the hilar bile ducts is challenging, since histological confirmation of PHC is difficult to obtain and accurate non-invasive diagnostic tests are not available. IgG4-associated cholangitis (IAC), an imitator of PHC, may present with clinical and radiographical signs of PHC. IAC can be accurately diagnosed with a novel qPCR test. The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence and long-term activity of IAC in patients resected for PHC in a single tertiary center over a period of 30 years...

Infantile choriocarcinoma (ICC) is a rare, highly malignant form of gestational trophoblastic neoplasia. Rapid diagnosis and initiation of treatment are paramount in reaching a successful outcome. Patients with these tumors typically present with a triad of anemia, hepatomegaly, and precocious puberty. Cutaneous manifestations of ICC are extraordinarily rare with few documented cases. Here, we describe a male neonate who presented to our Dermatology clinic with a rapidly growing, markedly vascular glabellar mass associated with abnormal laboratory values suggestive of Kasabach-Merritt phenomenon...

The carcinogenicity of quinoline was examined by administrating quinoline in the drinking water to groups of 50 F344/DuCrj rats and 50 Crj: BDF1 mice of each sex. In rats, the doses of quinoline were 0, 200, 400, and 800 ppm for males and 0, 150, 300, and 600 ppm for females. In male rats, administration of quinoline was terminated at week 96 due to high mortality caused by tumors. There were significant increases of hepatocellular adenomas, hepatocellular carcinomas, hepatocellular adenomas and/or carcinomas (combined), and liver hemangiomas, hemangiosarcomas, hemangiomas and/or hemangiosarcomas (combined) in both male and female rats, and nasal esthesioneuroepitheliomas and sarcoma NOS (not otherwise specified) in males...

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...
