ABSTRACT
A 53-yr-old woman with a history of hepatic cystadenoma 25 yr before presented with a simple hepatic cyst, which evolved over 9 yr into a complex cystadenoma with septations and internal bleeding. She was treated with a left hepatectomy. Review of the literature shows that hepatic cystadenomas, although rare, frequently can recur years later and have potential for malignant transformation. Histologic similarities of one variant with ovarian stroma raises interesting possibilities regarding the origin of these lesions. The best treatment results are obtained with radical excision.
