Although malakoplakia of the genitourinary tract and colon is reported frequently in the literature, malakoplakia that occurs primarily in the liver is rare, and only 4 cases have been described thus far. To our knowledge, this is the first case of malakoplakia of the liver diagnosed by a needle core biopsy. This case occurred in a 19-year-old man with small bowel ileus following Klebsiella pneumonia.
