The Teaching Point

This observation suggests that in FNH, intra-tumoral ischemic events may result in the progressive expansion of the central scar through the destruction of pre-existing adjacent hyperplastic nodules.

Abstract
We report an unusual case of focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) with angioma-like vascularity in the central scar illustrated on MRI and proven by histopathology. The vascular theory of common causative factors in FNH and haemangioma is discussed.
