Although hepatic hemangioma is common, its rupture after trauma is rare. We report a 47-year-old woman with a traumatic hepatic hemangioma rupture following a traffic accident who successfully underwent operation. Only four cases of hepatic hemangioma rupture caused by blunt trauma have been reported including this one. Each patient (two men and two women) had a giant right lobe hemangioma. The causal injury included traffic accident in two, a fall in one, and minor trauma in another. Three patients underwent surgery, and one was conservatively managed. All the patients survived.
