Hepatocellular adenomas are usually affect females in their 3rd and 4th decades of life. Uses of oral contraceptives use or anabolic steroids have been blamed for this. This is rare in old age and in an elderly male presented with hepatic adenoma. Such cases are difficult to diagnose on fine needle aspiration cytology and can cause under or over diagnosis. Here we present a rare case of hepatic adenoma in an elderly male with both cytological as well as histopathology features of adenoma.
