Haemangiomas are the most common benign lesions of liver with female gender preponderance. These are usually silent and become symptomatic when larger in size (>4 cm – giant haemangioma). Multifocality and capsular retraction on computerized tomography are rare features. We are presenting a case of multifocal haemangiomatosis with a giant hepatic lesion showing capsular retraction on CT images.

Key Words: Giant haemangioma; multifocal haemangiomas; capsular retraction; Kasabach Merritt’s syndrome
