CT and MRI findings of multifocal hepatic steatosis mimicking malignancy
- 406 Downloads
We present two rare cases of multifocal hepatic steatosis as a variant of fatty liver. Multifocal hepatic steatosis can cause misleading findings in the differential diagnosis when using ultrasound and computed tomography. This case report describes the atypical findings of focal fatty liver infiltrations, which were misdiagnosed as diffuse metastatic disease. The correct diagnosis was established with magnetic resonance imaging using T1-weighted gradient-echo and T2-weighted Turbo spin-echo sequences with spectral fat suppression. Multifocal hepatic steatosis was proven by biopsy.
