Abstract

A cavernous haemangioma of the liver which enlarged rapidly while the patient was receiving exogenous oestrogens is reported. A dramatic decrease in the size of the tumour was produced by ligating the right hepatic artery and portal vein. The literature on large haemangiomas of the liver is reviewed.
