Liver scintigraphy may be misinterpreted as indicating tumor of the left lobe. Computed tomography correctly identifies absence of the left lobe and compensatory hyperplasia of the caudate lobe. Two illustrative cases with a peculiar “tongue-like projection” of the caudate lobe are presented. © Lippincott-Raven Publishers.
