Hepatic hemangioma is one of the most frequent benign neoplasms of the liver. Yet, hyalinized hemangioma represents a regressed form of cavernous hemangioma, a very rare disease that has only been reported in two patients in Korea. Hyalinized hemangiomas are characterized by severe sclerosis and are occasionally misdiagnosed as malignancies. Hemangiomas have identifiable features on ultrasonography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. However, the radiologic differential diagnosis is extensive and should include malignant tumors. We report a very rare case of hyalinized hepatic hemangioma and present a review of the literature.
