Metastasis into the hepatic hemangioma is a rare occurrence. We report a unique case of metastasis of intestinal carcinoma into hepatic hemangioma in a case of 65 year old male who presented with anorexia, weakness and headache. The postmortem examination revealed adenocarcinoma in the ileocaecal region. The liver showed a subcapsular hemangioma of 1.5 cms. diameter which on microscopic examination revealed metastasis of adenocarcinoma. The is the first documentation of metastasis in hepatic hemangioma. Such cases may pose problems of diagnostic difficulties and thus may result in mismanagement.
