Cavernous Hemangioma of Liver
Cavernous hemangiomas of the liver are usually solitary, well-circumscribed lesions with a spongy cut-surface. The size may range from 1 cm to 30 cm. The location may be subcapsular (more common) or deep parenchymal. This 9 cm cavernous hemangioma was resected from the liver of a 42 y/o female who presented with 1-yr history of intermittent right upper quadrant pain. The whitish area on the right was composed of dense hyalinized collagenous tissue indicating chronicity of the lesion. Image courtesy of: Dr. Sanjay D. Deshmukh, Professor of Pathology, Pad.
