Benign nodular hyperplasia of the liver-pedunculated form: diagnostic contributions of ultrasonography and consideration of exophytic liver tumors

We present the case of a young female patient without a personal pathological history, who complained of intense, diffuse, intermittent, non-systematic abdominal pain and who underwent ultrasound examination, followed by contrast-enhanced ultrasound. With this technique, we evidenced a solid extrahepatic tumor, which was mobile at the patient’s change of position and had the hemodynamic features of FNH. The article also tackles the problem of intra-abdominal pedunculated tumors.

cute;bori L Abstract The most common benign liver tumours are haemangiomas, focal nodular hyperplasia and hepatocellular adenoma. We perform a review of the literature and show the current diagnostic and therapeutic modalities based on the EASL Clinical Practice Guideline. With the widespread use of ultrasound, the detection of liver lesions is increased. They are usually found in women of childbearing age with atypical abdominal pain or incidentally. Contrast-enhanced US, CT or MRI are usually necessary for differential diagnosis. In atypical appearance or in malignancy suspect cases biopsy could be performed. Fo...

​A previously healthy 17-year-old girl presented to the ED with one month of intermittent, burning epigastric pain associated with nausea and vomiting. Pain was worsened by spicy, greasy foods, and alleviated by sparkling water. She said she came to the ED because the pain had persisted for a while and was interfering with her life. The patient denied fevers, recent travel, or a change in bowel movements. She admitted to traveling to Nicaragua many times in her life and to an unintentional 20-pound weight gain over the past year.​Vitals at presentation were a heart rate of 83 bpm, temperature of 36.6°C, blood press...

We presented two different cases of focal nodular hyperplasia in children. The first child underwent chemotherapy and bone marrow allotransplantation due to non-Hodgkin lymphoma and focal nodular hyperplasia was diagnosed incidentally a few years later. In the second child, a diagnosis of focal nodular hyperplasia was established in the course of differential diagnosis of abdominal pain. Focal nodular hyperplasia might be difficult to diagnose on the basis of imaging procedures and sometimes liver biopsy is required.
