Polymyalgia rheumatica as a manifestation of a large hepatic cavernous hemangioma

Published in Journal of Hepatology. 2000, vol. 32, no. 2, p. 358-60
Abstract A 59-year-old woman presented with polymyalgia rheumatica which was refractory to conventional anti-inflammatory and steroid therapy. A full investigation for an underlying occult malignancy showed only the presence of a giant cavernous hepatic hemangioma. To our knowledge, polymyalgia rheumatica has never been described in association with giant cavernous hepatic hemangioma; resection of the latter lesion resulted in complete and, to this date, definite resolution of rheumatologic complaints in our patient.
