Abstract

Introduction: Hemangioma is the most common benign liver tumor which is usually asymptomatic. There is no consensus on how to deal with symptomatic hemangiomas during pregnancy. In this report, a case of a symptomatic giant Cavernous Hemangioma in a 39-year-old woman at four month of pregnancy is introduced. Case report: A 39-year-old woman (Gravida4, para3) with a 4-month pregnancy was referred to the hospital due to pain in the epigastria and right hypochondria and nausea and vomiting. In clinical examination, a massive lesion which covered the entire upper abdominal region was palpable. Since it was symptomatic, it was successfully removed by surgery during pregnancy and Hemangioma with size of 23.5 x 16.5 cm was removed. Conclusion: Successful surgical removal of such a giant hemangioma is rare during pregnancy.
