The appearance of a mass in the hepatic parenchyma may signal the presence of a myriad of systemic and focal pathological processes. Many of the more common focal liver lesions are described elsewhere in this book. The aim of this chapter is to describe imaging and pathologic findings of some of the more uncommon masses which can arise in the liver and their management. The rare adult and pediatric liver masses can mimic the more commonly encountered liver masses clinically as well as radiologically. A brief review of the literature regarding their presentation, current diagnostic approach, and treatment is presented.
