Primary hepatic mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma has a low incidence and is a rare subtype of hepatic malignant lymphoma. Described here is a rare case of primary hepatic MALT lymphoma and hepatic hemangioma with chronic HBV infection as an underlying condition. Possible treatment modalities, which should be selected in accordance with tumor size, tumor location, tumor number, and underlying liver disease, are discussed in conjunction with a review of the literature. In addition, the potential use of hepatic resection, radio frequency ablation (RFA), or radiotherapy followed by chemotherapy via the R-CHOP regimen is also discussed.
