A case of multiple hepatic adenomas associated with birth control pills in a 25-year-old female is presented. Her only complaint was abdominal pain, and an elevated alkaline phosphatase was the only laboratory abnormality. The largest adenoma was located in the caudate lobe and was resected. The other two were small, located deep in the right lobe, and treated with radiofrequency ablation. Currently, the patient is asymptomatic and her alkaline phosphatase has returned to normal levels.
