Inflammatory pseudotumour of the liver: diagnosis by fine needle biopsy in two cases and a review of the literature



Inflammatory pseudotumour of the liver: diagnosis by fine needle biopsy in two cases and a review of the literature



Italian Journal of Gastroenterology 26(3): 151-153



Inflammatory pseudotumours of the liver are rare: over 40 cases had been reported up to 1992, the majority of which are surgical or laparoscopic findings. In this paper we describe two additional cases in which diagnosis was acquired by fine needle biopsy under ultrasonographic guidance. This approach allowed sufficient sampling of tissue for diagnostic purposes.
