Hemangiomas are part of the most common benign tumors in the liver. They are usually asymptomatic and rarely complicate unless they are of an important size. Pain is usually the most common symptom associated with it. CT is usually the most used auxiliary method. Surgical exeresis is indicated in symptomatic cases. We present the case of a 60-year-old woman who presented with abdominal pain for 3 weeks. A heterogeneous mass in proximity to the liver, pancreas and ascending colon of 66 x 32 mm was found in their auxiliary studies. Laparoscopic surgical procedure was decided without complications. The return of the pathological anatomy informs hepatic cavernous hemangioma.

Keywords : cavernous hemangioma; liver; laparoscopy.
