Multiple cystic lesions of the liver and ascites
A 76-year-old man is described with multiple cystic lesions in the liver and the peritoneum, with massive ascites, due to recurrence of a 3 year before resected hepatocellular carcinoma of the left lobe. The spectrum of cystic lesions of the liver is discussed: this patient is a unique case where cystic lesions are due to metastasis of hepatocellular cancer.
