  • A 65-year-old man without health complaints had a physical examination.
  • Laboratory tests revealed moderate anemia, slightly increased AST and ALT levels, and normal
    carcinoembryonic antigen level.

  • Abdominal ultrasonography showed a heterogeneous, hyperechoic mass with irregular borders of 5
    cm in the right lobe (V-VIII) and three simple cysts.

  • Contrast-enhanced abdominal CT was performed to further evaluate the mass.
