Effect of pregnancy on liver tumor associated with oral contraceptives.


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.
