Core Tip: Hepatic shunts present from birth, hepatic hemangiomas, and hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia have all been described in the scientific literature over the decades. Most reviews were written by radiologists or surgeons, but none have adequately covered all these topics from the gastroenterologist’s perspective. Our review serves as a reference for most congenital vascular anomalies that present in the liver. Our goal is to provide knowledge to help clinicians understand the burden of disease of these conditions and guide management decisions.
