Dynamic enhanced CT obtained in the early phase and colour Doppler studies may be helpful in the diagnosis of FNH by allowing characterisation of tumour vascularity. FNH should be included in the differential diagnosis of liver mass in children.
Focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) is the most common non-hemangiomatous benign hepatic tumor, but to our knowledge, ectopic FNH has been reported only once before in the gastroenterology literature. We present the first case of ectopic FNH in the radiology
Atypical focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) of the liver is a diagnostic challenge as a variety of atypical imaging findings can occur in this entity. There is no potential for malignant transformation, making noninvasive diagnosis welcome in order to avoid invasive steps

An ultrasound-guided biopsy of one of the lesions in segment VIII revealed an FNH or in the clinical context and together with the image findings likely an FNH-like lesion, also known as a large regenerative nodule (LRN) , and a cirrhotic alteration of the surrounding liver parenchyma (Figure 4).
In addition, the contrast enhancement ratio and lesion-to-liver contrast ratio of the two groups of lesions were compared with established contrast enhancement ratio and lesion-to-liver contrast ratio for FNH and HCA from published data [7, 20]. All the data

Focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) and hepatocellular adenoma (HCA) are benign hepatocellular tumors. The risk of bleeding and malignant transformation of HCA are strong arguments to differentiate HCA from FNH. Despite great progress that has been made in the differential radiological diagnosis of the 2 types of nodules, liver biopsy is sometimes necessary to separate the 2 entities

On delayed liver specific phase images after Gd-BOPTA administration, HA is hypointense, which is one on the main features in differentiating HA from FNH. The hypointensity reflects the lack of biliary ducts. This enhancement pattern of Gd-BOPTA is opposite

Focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) of the liver is a benign, nodular, noncapsulated liver mass. It is commonly observed in adults, but rarely reported in children. An increased incidence of FNH in long-term survivors of childhood malignancies or hematopoietic stem.
Laboratory tests for liver function are usually normal. Because of the different therapeutic options HCA must be distinguished from other hypervascular lesions (HCC, fibrolamellar HCC, focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH), and metastases) that may occur in young
16/12/2010 · Oftentimes we are confronted with the diagnostic dilemma: is this a hepatic adenoma or focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH)? It is critical that the distinction is made properly, for adenomas have the potential to grow, rupture or turn into hepatocellular carcinoma.
You have to adapt your protocol to the type of scanner, the speed of contrast injection and to the kind of patient that you are examining. If you have a single slice scanner, it will take about 20 seconds to scan the liver. For late arterial phase imaging 35 sec is the optimal time, so you start at about 25 seconds and end at about 45 seconds.

Benign liver tumors are very rare in children. Most focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) remain sporadic, but predisposing factors exist, as follows: long-term cancer survivor (with an increasing incidence), portal deprivation in congenital or surgical portosystemic shunt.
