Imaging of multifocal liver lesions in children and adolescents.

Hegde SV, Dillman JR, Lopez MJ, Strouse PJ - Cancer Imaging (2013)

Bottom Line: Multifocal liver lesions are encountered regularly in children and adolescents.By knowing the specific ultrasonographic, computed tomographic, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of benign and malignant pediatric liver lesions as well as the particular clinical setting, radiologists can frequently narrow the differential diagnosis and sometimes offer a definitive diagnosis.The purpose of this review article is to illustrate the imaging findings of numerous benign and malignant causes of multifocal liver lesions in the pediatric population.

A 14-year-old boy with familial adenomatous polyposis and metastatic colon cancer. (a) Axial postcontrast CT image demonstrates multiple large hypoenhancing liver masses, suspicious for mucinous adenocarcinoma metastases. (b) The transverse colon (arrowheads) appears diffusely thickened due to the presence of numerous endoscopically proven colonic adenomatous polyps.
