Effect of pregnancy on liver tumor associated with oral contraceptives.

Abstract

Four cases of liver adenoma associated with oral contraceptives complicating pregnancy are reported. All patients were symptomatic during pregnancy and 2 were admitted with rupture of the adenoma. One subsequently died. Increased growth and vascularity of adenomas during pregnancy is highly likely. The potential for development of lethal complications is considerable.
