We report a case of an 81-year-old male evaluated for a liver space-occupying lesion. US-guided biopsy and immunohistochemistry were suggestive of hepatocellular adenoma (HCA)-inflammatory (with telangiectasia). Serial 18-F fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography scans revealed a heterogeneously enhancing hypermetabolic mass in the right lobe of the liver, remaining stable for a span of 3 years. This case highlights that benign rare tumors of the liver such as HCA can be intensely FDG avid and that uptake cannot conclude its malignant transformation.
