Cavernous hemangioma liver

Cavernous hemangioma liver

Cavernous hemangioma is a benign connective tissue tumor resulted from endothelial cells proliferation. It is a non-encapsulated tumor, with an infiltrative, lobular growing. The tumor consists in large (cavernous) spaces, lined by tumor endothelial cells (which appear very similar to normal cells). These interconnected spaces are filled with blood and separated by a fibrous tissue. (H&E, ob. 4)
