Hepatic teratoma and peritoneal gliomatosis: a case report


Karlo, C; Leschka, S; Dettmer, M; Breitenstein, S; Stolzmann, P (2009). Hepatic teratoma and peritoneal gliomatosis: a case report. Cases Journal, 2:9302.

Abstract

The hepatic teratoma is a very rare entity of which only 25 cases have been published so far. In our case the hepatic teratoma is associated with peritoneal gliomatosis, which is an indicator for an ongoing peritoneal spread of a teratoma. Wall calcifications and the homogeneity as well as the well defined border misled the radiologist to the diagnosis of an echinococcal cyst, which is the most common differential diagnosis, however the hepatic teratoma has to be taking into consideration when dealing with unclear hepatic cysts, although it is very rare.
