BACKGROUND: Hemangioma of the cervix and focal nodular hyperplasia of the liver are both thought to be congenital vascular anomalies that could be associated with exogenous hormone use.

CASE: A 34-year-old woman taking oral contraceptives developed hemangioma of the cervix and focal nodular hyperplasia of the liver.
