Abstract
Hemangioma is the most common type of benign tumor
that arises in the liver. Although rupture and hemorrhage
of hepatic hemangioma are rare complications, they
can be the cause of mortality. The authors report a
case of hemorrhagic hepatic hemangioma: in a 54-year-
old woman who was admitted with epigastric pain.
She had taken oral contraceptives several weeks prior.
The results of a blood examination were normal. An
abdominal computed tomography scan revealed a
tumor in hepatic segment 4, and a hemorrhage inside
the cystic mass was suspected. The mass was removed
laparoscopically to confirm the tumor properties and
control the hemorrhage. The pathologic findings
of the resected mass were consistent with hepatic
hemangioma with intratumoral hemorrhage. The patient
was discharged 8 d after the surgery, without further
complications or complaints, and the patient’s condition
was found to have improved during follow-up.
