Bottom Line: In 1923, Masson regarded this disease as a neoplasm inducing endothelial proliferation, however, now it is considered to be a reactive vascular proliferation following traumatic vascular stasis.The lesion has a propensity to occur in the head, neck, fingers, and trunk.Occurrence within the abdominal cavity is known to be very rare, and especially in the liver, there has been no reported case up to date.

ABSTRACT
Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (Masson's hemangioma) is a disease characterized by exuberant endothelial proliferation within the lumen of medium-sized veins. In 1923, Masson regarded this disease as a neoplasm inducing endothelial proliferation, however, now it is considered to be a reactive vascular proliferation following traumatic vascular stasis. The lesion has a propensity to occur in the head, neck, fingers, and trunk. Occurrence within the abdominal cavity is known to be very rare, and especially in the liver, there has been no reported case up to date. The authors have experienced intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia of the liver in a 69-yr-old woman, and report the case with a review of the literature.

Figure 5: The specimen shows an inhomogeneous, multinodular mass with a focal necrosis.

Mentions: Under the suspicion of cholangiocarcinoma or hemangiosarcoma, the patient underwent left hemihepatectomy including the caudate lobe with surrounding lymphadenectomy. The mass seen during operation was limited to the left lobe, of 10×7 cm size, and was a non-homogenous multinodular mass including a focal necrosis. No major vessel invasion was observed (Fig. 5).
