Diagnoses made at imaging were reviewed and related to clinical course. Hepatic haemangioma was diagnosed in 2071 patients (2.5% prevalence). In 226 patients (10.9%), haemangioma had diameter of 4cm or more (giant haemangioma). The risk of bleeding was assessed on patients without concomitant malignancies. Spontaneous bleeding occurred in 5/1067 patients (0.47%). All 5 patients had giant haemangioma: 4 had exophytic lesions and presented with haemoperitoneum; 1 with centrally located tumour experienced intrahepatic bleeding. Giant haemangiomas have a low but relevant risk of rupture (3.2% in this series), particularly when peripherally located and exophytic.
Usually the primary paediatric tumors are malignant. There were 83 reports about hemangioma bleeding between 1898 and 2010. A total of 97 cases weredescribed: 46 in English, 14 in German, 3 in French, 4 inItalian, and 1 in Spanish, as well as a further 15 articles inother languages (9 in Japanese, 2 in Russian, 1 in Hebrew,1 in Norwegian, 1 in Turkish, and 1 in Hungarian).Two double-published cases were identified [26,39,84,85]. The results are summarized in Table1, although wenote that in many cases data were not reported or notavailable. Fifty-one patients (52.6%) were females and29 (29.8%) males. In 17 cases (17.6%) sex was notdetermined.
