Angiomyolipoma (AML) is a rare benign mesenchymal tumor in the liver, which is composed of blood vessels, smooth muscle, and adipose cells. The proportion of each component varies, making a diagnosis difficult. This paper reports a case of AML in th
Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is a disorder of unknown cause characterized by unresolving inflammation of the liver and by the presence of interface hepatitis on histologic examination (Fig. 1-1), hypergammaglobulinemia, and autoantibodies.

Histologically there is a consistent infiltration with dissociation of the surrounding muscle fiber. Infiltrating lipoma can be excised with surrounding normal muscle and tissue to avoid recurrence.
This case is a 57-year-old female with a painless swelling of the right cervical and parotid areas diagnosed as large infiltrating lipoma by clinical examination and radiographic findings. The pati
