Abstract

In hepatic adenomatosis, multiple liver cell adenomas (usually ≥ 10) generally affects patients with no prior history of oral contraceptive use, androgenic steroid use, or glycogen storage disease. We report a rare case of a 44 year-old female who underwent emergency surgery for hemoperitoneum due to spontaneous rupture of a liver cell adenoma in hepatic adenomatosis, after prolonged use of two different contraceptives (Gestodene and Ethinylestradiol).
