characterization of hepatic angiomyolipoma using magnetic resonance imaging and
contrast-enhanced ultrasonography: a case report
A hepatic angiomyolipoma is a rare
benign tumor of the liver composed of a mixture of smooth muscle cells, blood
vessels and a variable amount of adipose tissue. Differentiating them from
malignant liver tumors can often be very difficult.
We report the case of a
43-year-old Caucasian man presenting with a large liver mass in the right lobe.
The results of magnetic resonance imaging and contrast-enhanced ultrasonography
were consistent with a well-demarcated adipose tissue- containing tumor,
showing prolonged hyperperfusion in comparison with the surrounding liver
tissue. Surgery was performed and the diagnosis of hepatic angiomyolipoma was
made with histopathology.
characterization using magnetic resonance imaging and contrast-enhanced
ultrasonography may improve diagnostic accuracy of hepatic angiomyolipoma.
Identification of smooth muscle cells, blood vessels and adipose tissue with a
positive immunohistochemical reaction for HMB-45 is the final evidence for an
