Core Tip We present a patient with focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) of the liver who was followed up for 7 years. A 26-year-old woman with a 5-year history of oral contraceptive use was referred to our hospital in February 2005 for further examination of a liver tumour. The diagnosis of FNH was made using magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with hepatospecific contrast media. After 7-year from the diagnosis, we observed the complete spontaneous regression of the lesion by enhanced MR scanning. In this patient, discontinuation of oral contraceptive use and two childbirths may have influenced the natural history of FNH.
