She had no history of oral contraceptive use or corticosteroid therapy. Ultrasonography showed multiple masses in the right lobe of the liver. The clinical associations and potential complications of hepatocellular adenomas are discussed, and the histologic characteristics are provided. Their typical appearance on computed tomography, ultrasonography, magnetic resonance imaging, and nuclear scintigraphy is described. The differential diagnosis of hepatic adenomatosis and multiple solid liver masses is discussed.
