Giant Cavernous Hepatic Hemangioma Diagnosed Incidentally in a Perimenopausal Obese Female with Endometrial Adenocarcinoma: A Case Report



Giant Cavernous Hepatic Hemangioma Diagnosed Incidentally in a Perimenopausal Obese Female with Endometrial Adenocarcinoma: A Case Report



Anticancer Research 36(2): 769-772



Hemangiomas are the most common benign tumors of the liver, considered giant when they exceed 50-100 mm in diameter. In the present report, we present a case of a 5.2-kg hemangioma of the right hepatic lobe, with hemangiomatous foci in the left lobe, which was incidentally diagnosed in a 53-year-old obese female hospitalized for uterine bleeding. The computed tomographic scan and physical examination revealed a giant abdominal tumor and hepatic hemangioma of the right hepatic lobe was suspected. Right hepatectomy and total hysterectomy with bilateral ovariectomy was performed. The histological examination of the surgical specimens confirmed the extremely giant cavernous hepatic hemangioma, and a synchronous pT1a endometrioid endometrial adenocarcinoma was also diagnosed. The patient remains alive without postoperative disorders, 6 months after surgery. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of such huge hemangioma incidentally diagnosed in an obese female, with a synchronous endometrial adenocarcinoma of the uterus. Because obesity may cause hyperestrogenism, it might both increase the growth rate of hemangioma and the genesis of endometrial cancer in perimenopausal females.
