El primer reporte de LG conocido, pertenece a Jean Cruveilhier, quien lo describio en 1842 (Treska et al., 1998); y a pesar de ello, el numero de casos reportados es muy escaso, de hecho, en una revision sistematica publicada recientemente, se recuperaron solo 32 casos de LG de gran tamano (> 4 cm) desde 1980 (Cappell et al.).
