Regression of liver cell adenomas associated with oral contraceptives.

Abstract

The regression of liver cell adenomas that follow the use of oral contraceptives when steroids are withdrawn was observed in three patients. At diagnosis by needle biopsy in patients without pain or evidence of hemorrhage, prompt cessation of steriod use is suggested as the preferable form of treatment. The same is true for the diagnosis made at surgery if the tumor or tumors are difficult to remove.
