Nine year follow-up of a case of benign liver cell adenoma related to oral contraceptives.


The case of a 26-year-old women on oral contraceptives who developed a benign liver cell adenoma that was successfully resected is reported. She continued on her oral medication and developed a recurrence 3 years later. On her second laparotomy, the liver tumor was merely biopsied and not removed. Oral contraceptive use was continued for an additional 3 years and then stopped. The tumor has regressed and is no longer palpable or diagnosable. The patient continues to be well 9 years following her first surgical procedure.
