Inflammatory pseudotumor of
the liver: a case report and review of the literature
Inflammatory pseudotumor of the
liver represents a fairly uncommon pathology. Although it is a benign tumor,
the correct diagnosis can be missed.
We report the case of a
55-year-old Caucasian man, who presented with a one-month history of abdominal
pain and weight loss. He was diagnosed with a primary liver tumor by computed
tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. Alpha-fetoprotein levels ranged
within normal limits. A right posterior sectorectomy was performed.
Histopathology revealed an inflammatory pseudotumor of the liver. Our patient
remains in good condition one year later.
Although inflammatory pseudotumor
of the liver is usually a benign process, controversy regarding its management
still exists. With this case report we review the existing literature and
consider hepatectomy as a safe treatment approach.
