Core tip: Hepatic angiomyolipoma (AML) is a benign tumor which is composed of a heterogeneous mixture of adipose cells, smooth muscle cells and blood vessels. Here, we report the case of a 44-year-old man who developed Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with concomitant hepatic AML and cavernous hemangioma, in the absence of cirrhosis. To our knowledge, based on an extensive literature search using the PubMed, this is the first report of an HCC case with both concomitant AML and cavernous hemangioma in the liver. The characteristics of the AML and cavernous hemangioma in this patient did not match any criteria for malignancy.
