Abstract

Inflammatory Pseudotumor of Liver (IPL) is a rare disease, which characterized by heterogeneous population of acute and chronic inflammatory cell. The etiology of inflammatory pseudotumor is unclear, and it is often confused with hepatic malignant tumors due to atypical clinical manifestation. Because inflammatory pseudotumor can regress spontaneously or be managed conservatively, it is important to differentiate IPL from malignant hepatic tumor before operation, in order to avoid unnecessary surgery. Although IPL may spontaneously regress or regress following antimicrobial and steroidal treatment, surgery is the first choice of treatment yet. Herein, we reported a case of IPL and reviewed the literature.
