A patient with Fanconi's anemia who developed a hepatoma after 50 mth of therapy with anabolic steroids is reported. The lesion presented as a cold focal defect on a 99Tc(m) sulfur colloid scintigram, but was avascular on dynamic scintigraphy. Both the unusual avascularity of the hepatoma, and its association with anabolic steroid therapy are discussed. At autopsy a well differentiated liver cell carcinoma was found. The tumor contained no hemosiderosis. There was no evidence of cirrhosis.
