Description:
Inflammatory pseudotumours of the liver are extremely rare benign lesions. They were first described by Pack and Baker in 1953 1. They usually present with raised inflammatory markers and non-specific abdominal symptoms. Most of these lesions are picked up incidentally on ultrasound scans. Diagnosis of these lesions poses a dilemma and a challenge due to their radiological similarities to other liver lesions such as hepatocellular carcinoma HCC. In this article we describe our experience in its diagnosis and management.
