Abstract

Perivascular epithelioid cell neoplasm (PEComa) is a rare tumor type and primary hepatic multiple perivascular is rarer still. The present case report investigated the case of a 40‑year‑old woman who was admitted to The Second Xiangya Hospital for hepatic multiple tumor by physical examination without any history of abdominal pain or body weight loss. Abdominal plain computed tomography revealed three lesions in the liver. All lesions exhibited a well‑defined boarder and only one mass contained fatty tissue in S6 of the liver. An enhanced scan revealed that all lesions were heterogeneous, and were enhanced on the artery phase and on portal vein phase. On delay phase, the lesions revealed continued enhancement, which is isoattenuating to the normal hepatic parenchyma. Following excision of the three masses, the patient was pathologically diagnosed with hepatic multiple PEComa. Short-term re-examination revealed no recurrence.
