ABSTRACT
PURPOSE: To find out whether subcapsular hemangioma showed focal bulging of hepatic contour or not and if it did, to know incidence and correlate it with size. MATERIALS and METHODS: From May 1994 to December 1998, we retrospectively analysed 28 hemangiomas of 23 patients which had been diagnosed pathologically, on the base of CT, MRI and Tc 99m-RBC scan. There were 9 men and 14 women with a mean age of 54.3 years ( range; 33-80 years). RESULTS: Thirteen cases (46%) of total 28 hemangiomas showed focal bulging of hepatic contour. Fifteen hemangiomas were located in the right lobe and 13 in the left lobe. Six cases (40%) of right lobe hemangioma and seven cases (54%) of left lobe hemangioma showed focal bulging of hepatic contour. The diameter of hemangiomas was ranged 1.5-9.0 (mean, 3.8)cm. Eleven cases of 14 hemangiomas below 3cm showed no focal bulging of hepatic contour (79%). Ten cases of 14 hemangiomas above 3cm showed focal bulging of hepatic contour (71%). CONCLUSION: Subcapsular hemangioma could frequently show focal bulging of hepatic contour and the larger a hemangioma was, the more frequently focal bulging of hepatic contour occured.
