We describe two cases of solitary necrotic nodule of the liver, an uncommon nonmalignant lesion that can mimic a metastasis. The nodule appeared hypoechoic, or target-like, on sonography, hypodense without contrast enhancement on computed tomography, and hypointense on magnetic resonance imaging, including diffusion-weighted images. These features, peculiar when considered together, are explained by the coagulative type of necrosis.

Abstract

We describe two cases of solitary necrotic nodule of the liver, an uncommon nonmalignant lesion that can mimic a metastasis. The nodule appeared hypoechoic, or target-like, on sonography, hypodense without contrast enhancement on computed tomography, and hypointense on magnetic resonance imaging, including diffusion-weighted images. These features, peculiar when considered together, are explained by the coagulative type of necrosis.
