ASTENCIO RODRIGUEZ, Gloria  e  MAS MARTINEZ, Mayra. Liver giant hemangioma. Rev cubana med [online]. 2013, vol.52, n.4, pp.281-285. ISSN 0034-7523.

The so called giant hepatic hemangioma is usually less frequent than those smaller than 5 cm. The first ones cause symptoms in some cases and they increased the risk of complications such as traumatic rupture; so that their management can be rather complex since currently there is no consensus for their treatment. A 18 year-old female patient was received at consultation due to pain and palpable mass in the epigastrium. In imaging studies performed a tumor was found in the left hepatic lobe, which was compatible with giant hemangioma. It was corroborated by videolaparoscopy which showed an atypical vascular imaging. This case was discussed in an interdisciplinary team of the gastroenterology, surgery and imaging services. Chemoembolization to hepatic artery was initially decided with Gel FOAM and, in a second stage, surgical resection of the lesion was performed, which allowed greater surgical accessibility, avoiding complications, along with a positive surgical outcome.
