ABSTRACT

Focal Nodular Hyperplasia (FNH) is the most common benign liver mass ("tumor") and is composed of normal hepatocytes and Kupffer's cells. Characteristic substantial enhancement after contrast injection and visible central stellate fibrous scar dividing the mass into lobules seen on portal phase of enhancement. Normal uptake on 99m Tc-Sulfur Colloid virtually excludes other hepatic neoplasms that don't contain Kupffer's cells (e.g. cavernous angioma, metastasis, or hepatocellular carcinoma).

No MeSH data available.
