Benign Tumors of the Liver

  • Zachary D. Goodman


Benign tumors of the liver are all uncommon or relatively rare entities. Some are true neoplasms, others are tumorlike masses, while still others are of uncertain pathogenesis. They have diverse clinical manifestations that parallel their pathological features. The classification of benign hepatic tumors (Table 8.1), based on their principal histological features, is adapted from several previously published reviews [1-4].
