Traditionally, surgical resection has been the treatment of choice in many patients with hepatocellular adenoma because of the risk of rupture, hemorrhage and malignant transformation. However, some patients are not amenable for surgery due to the extensive involvement of the liver, as in patients with liver adenomatosis. We report 2 cases with liver adenomatosis in which we combined surgery with open and percutaneous radiofrequency ablation for lesions located in both lobes of the liver. Minimal invasive treatment including radiofrequency ablation may offer new perspectives in the treatment of patients with liver adenomatosis. Copyright (c) 2011 S. Karger AG, Basel
