Rare Case of Hepatic Endometriosis as an Incidental Finding:
Difficult Diagnosis of a Diagnostic Dilemma
Ann Hepatol 2018; 17(5)  : 884-887


Endometriosis is the abnormal existence of functional uterine mucosal tissue outside the uterus. It is a usual disorder of women in reproductive age which is mainly located in the female genital tract. Hepatic endometriosis is one of the rarest disorders characterised by the presence of ectopic endometrium in the liver. It is often described as cystic mass with or without solid component. Preoperative diagnosis is difficult via cross-sectional imaging and histopathologic evaluation remains the gold standard for diagnosis.

We report an asymptomatic 40-year-old female with a large cystic mass involving the left hepatic lobe. She underwent laparoscopic removal of the cyst. The diagnosis of hepatic endometriosis was established by the histopathological analysis of the surgical specimen.

Palabras clave: Liver, cyst, lesion, surgery, imaging, symptoms.
