Abstract:


Pseudolymphoma of the liver (reactive lymphoid hyperplasia) (RLH) is a rare condition. It is usually asymptomatic and detected incidentally on radiological imaging. Imaging features are similar to hepatic adenoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, and malignant lymphoma and are not specific for pseudolymphoma of the liver. Percutaneous core biopsy is insufficient to distinguish pseudolymphoma of the liver from low-grade malignant lymphoma and extranodal marginal lymphomas. In this article, we present a case of hepatic RLH of a patient who presented with a skin rash on the leg and was detected incidentally on radiological imaging.

Keywords:

Pseudolymphoma, reactive lymphoid hyperplasia, mimicking hepatocellular carcinoma
