Abstract

Cavernous hemangiomas are the most common benign tumors of the liver. Most of them are less than 2-3 cm in diameter and remain asymptomatic. Hemangiomas can occasionally grow to a large size and become manifest to the patient and the clinician. The differential diagnosis for hemangioma may be difficult. Exact diagnosis is mandatory for the decision of whether to apply observation or surgery. In this paper, we report a 63 year old woman with a hepatic GCH (Giant cavernous hemangioma) measuring 35 cm. This present case is an example to a hemangioma case that may invade of a liver even very rarely seen.
