Anastomosing hemangioma of the liver (AHL) is a very rare condition and limited to a few cases. It is often confused with well-differentiated angiosarcomas and causes overtreatment. In this report, we present a 53-year-old female patient diagnosed with AHL. Since the tumor is rarely seen, it is important to define well the imaging and pathological features for preventing unnecessary surgeries and related morbidities.
