Abstract

A 52-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with thrombophlebitis of the internal jugular vein. Abdominal ultrasonography demonstrated a high echogenic mass measuring 4.5 cm in diameter in the liver, and abdominal CT revealed another liver tumor and an isodensity mass in the" spleen. Abdominal MRI and angiography were performed and we presumed the tumors to be two hepatic angiomyolipoma and a splenic hamartoma. As an abdominal CT 21 months later revealed that all tumors were growing, these tomors were surgically resected. The histological diagnoses were hepatic angiomyolipoma and splenic hamartoma.<br>(Internal Medicine 41: 191-198, 2002)
