Abstract

The magnetic resonance imaging findings in 2 cases of pathologically proven hepatocellular carcinoma that mimicked focal nodular hyperplasia are presented. Both cases were found in patients with cirrhosis, a condition in which focal nodular hyperplasia is unlikely to occur. Recognition that hepatocellular carcinoma may mimic focal nodular hyperplasia in patients with cirrhosis may prevent misdiagnosis and allow for earlier intervention.
