[A rare form of benign tumor of the liver possibly related to the use of oral contraceptives: focal pediculated nodular hyperplasia].

[Article in French]


Following a recent case, the authors review the literature of hepatic nodular hyperplasia. The incidence of this condition increases regularly with the consumption of oestrogens. They attempt to define the methods of detection for patients at highest risk. Without exaggerating the incidence of this complication of oral contraceptives, the authors believe that it will become increasingly more common than the vascular complications which, although frequently discussed, are relatively rare.
