ABDOMINAL IMAGING: Case Report

We report the computed tomography findings in a case of diffuse multinodular infarcted regenerative nodules, which mimicked an infiltrative hepatocellular carcinoma. Computed tomography revealed multiple hypodense lesions in the right hepatic lobe on the arterial phase and progressive enhancement of the peripheral and central portions of the lesions on the portal venous and delayed phases. A pathologic examination indicated that these regenerative nodules were necrotic and surrounded by fibrous tissue.
