We report a case of 50-year-old man with hyalinized hemangioma of the liver. This tumor was detected incidentally during surgical operation for gall stone and was preoperatively diagnosed as intrahepatic stone. A 2.5 2 cm sized gray to white hard mass was found in the left lobe of the liver. Histologically, the tumor was composed of dense collagenous tissue with marked hyalinization, calcification, and ossification admixed with scattered sclerotic vessels. Abundunt elastic fibers were noted in the hyalinized tissue. Totally hyalinized hemangioma is very uncommon and could be erroneously diagnosed as a malignant tumor by preoperative radiologic examination.
