Abstract

A benign, non-neoplastic, reactive growth of the liver, focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) of the liver was first clearly described by Edmondson in the 1950’s, although there are various prior reports that likely represent the same lesion. A variety of synonyms have been applied including focal cirrhosis, pedunculated adenoma, solitary hyperplastic nodule, mixed adenoma, hamartoma and hamartomatous cholangeiohepatoma.
