Background: Hepatic Hemangiomas (HHs) are the most common benign liver tumors. Generally, they appear as single tumor and are common located in the right lobe. Sometimes, they present symptoms such as pain, fullness, respiratory restriction, jaundice and others. When symptomatic HH needs surgical resection that is the main therapeutic choice.
Case Report: Middle age male presented a symptomatic single giant HH in caudate lobe. He is both motorcyclist and soccer player. He underwent an open caudate lobectomy by left approach and he presented none postoperative complication. To date, 18 months after hepatic resection, he presented a good quality of his life without any recurrence.
Conclusion: Although open caudate lobectomy is a technical demanding resection, it is very safe when performed by liver surgery experts. It can present a good result in long-term when is chosen to treat a large HH located in caudate lobe like we observed in this case report.
