A rare coexistence of a multicentric hepatic hemangioendothelioma with a large brain hemangioma in a preterm infant

A preterm infant with a rare association of a multicentric hepatic hemangioendothelioma (MHH) and a large brain hemangioma is described. The imaging investigations and their findings are discussed. It is recommended that whole-body radionuclide imaging with99mTc-labeled red blood cells is employed immediately following ultrasonography to confirm the suspected diagnosis of MHH and to detect other unsuspected hemangiomas.
