The Rare Case of Positive FDG-Positron Emission Tomography for Giant Cavernous Hemangioma of the Liver

Sollaku S, Frantellizzi V, Casciani E, Gualdi G, Liberatore M, Monteleone F and De Vincentis G

Hemangioma is the most common benign liver tumor and the second most common liver tumor after metastases. Large hemangiomas are often heterogeneous. When they exceed 4 cm in diameter, they are termed giant hemangiomas. These giant hemangiomas often present heterogeneous patterns. These heterogeneous appearances are shown because of intratumoral changes due to several degenerative phenomena. PET/CT is reported to be useful for the differentiation of benign from malignant liver lesions. We report the case of a large hepatic hemangioma characterized by high FDG uptake.
