A case of Kasabach-Merritt syndrome caused by focal nodular hyperplasia of the liver is presented with atypical magnetic resonance findings due to intratumoral hemosiderin deposition. The high sensitivity of magnetic resonance imaging for iron served to identify the site of hemolysis in this patient with Kasabach-Merritt syndrome.
