Author information

  • 1Department of Pathology, Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, IL 60153, USA.


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.
