15965              BENIGN HEPATOMA


No clinical information is available except that the mass was removed surgically.


The specimen consists of a portion of liver measuring 5 x 4 x 2 cms.  The cut surface shows a rounded tumour mass measuring 4 x 3 cms.  It is pale and firm with a nodular appearance separated by strands of connective tissue.  Histology shows well differentiated liver cells with occasional areas of what appears to be bile duct proliferation.  The consensus of opinion of a group of pathologists was that this is a benign lesion.
