Primary Hepatic Amyloidosis: Report of an Unusual Case Presenting as a Mass

By Rak Chae Son, Jae Chun Chang and Joon Hyuk Choi

Abstract

Hepatic involvement of amyloidosis is common. Diffuse infiltration with hepatomegaly is a usual radiologic finding of hepatic amyloidosis. To our knowledge, this is the first case of amyloidosis involving the liver that presented as a mass
