Focal nodular hyperplasia of the liver and hepatic cell adenoma in women on oral contraceptives.


The article reports on the respective occurrence of focal nodular hyperplasia and hepatic cell adenoma in the liver of two women on oral contraceptives. The hepatic cell adenoma showed serious vascular lesions, including peliosis hepatis. Both tumors were removed surgically, and the patients are well. A possible relationship between oral contraception and benign hepatic tumor genesis is discussed under consideration of the pertinent literary data.
