Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to illustrate the various pitfalls, mimics, and atypical features that can lead to inaccurate diagnosis of focal lesions in a noncirrhotic liver. The content includes relevant pathogenesis and background as well as specific clues that can be used to reach an accurate diagnosis. CONCLUSION. When assessing focal hepatic lesions, it is important to avoid pitfalls and misdiagnoses that can alter the management plan. Helpful strategies for avoiding pitfalls include paying close attention to the clinical history of the patient, carefully evaluating all of the available imaging studies, and being aware of the various radiologic mimics.
