The authors report a new case of hepatic adenoma apparently related to oral contraception continued for more than 9 years with a pill containing mestranol. The clinical presentation suggested an attack of hepatic colic with swollen gall bladder. The preoperative diagnosis of a tumour of segment VI of the liver was made by radiological examination of neighbouring organs. Hepatic arteriography, hepatic radioisotope scan using technetium phytate and echotomography. Surgical removal of segment VI confirmed by histological study showed that it was an adenoma with multiple foci, associated with hepatic involvement. One of the tumours was the site of central included hemorrhage, responsible for the clinical syndrome. In connection with this case the authors review the possible relationship between hepatic adenoma and oral contraception.
