Nancy M Joseph, Elizabeth M Brunt, Celia Marginean, ILKe Nalbantoglu, Dale C Snover, Swan N Thung, Matthew M Yeh, Sarah E Umetsu, Linda D Ferrell, Ryan M Gill,

Hepatic small vessel neoplasm (HSVN) is a recently described infiltrative vascular neoplasm of the liver, composed of small vessels. Although the infiltrative nature can mimic angiosarcoma, HSVN are thought to be benign or low-grade neoplasms because they lack cytologic atypia and increased proliferation. To characterize the molecular pathogenesis of HSVN, ... Read more >>
