Regression of inflammatory pseudotumor of the liver under conservative therapy.

Author information

Department of Hepato-Gastroenterology, Bichat-Claude Bernard Hospital, Paris, France.


Inflammatory pseudotumors (IPT) of the liver are rare benign tumors of unknown origin. Most previously reported cases were initially misdiagnosed and treated surgically; thus, their course under medical treatment remains unclear. We report an additional case of hepatic IPT with a favorable outcome under medical treatment without surgical resection. New imaging and pathologic features of this disease are presented that may facilitate preoperative recognition and appropriate treatment.
