Abstract We present dual-phase computed tomographic (CT) and angiographic findings of a ruptured hepatic angiosarcoma. These tumors can be divided into two types: those with and those without gross central necrosis with hemorrhage. In our case, the tumor had gross central necrosis, and CT and angiographic findings showed a small number of areas with a centripetal enhancement pattern and the rest of the tumor with avascular areas. We found that dual-phase CT and angiographic findings are able to distinguish angiosarcoma, which mimics a hemangioma, as these lesions show avascular areas that reflect a mass with gross central necrosis.
