Hepatocellular adenomas (HCAs) are uncommon, benign hepatocellular neoplasms that commonly occur in young women. Recent advances in pathology and cytogenetics have thrown fresh light on the pathogenesis of HCAs leading to classification of HCAs into 3 distinct subtypes, each with a characteristic epidemiology, histopathology, oncogenesis, and imaging findings. The aim of the article was to provide a comprehensive review of contemporary taxonomy of HCAs, with an emphasis on cross-sectional imaging findings and management.
