Abstract

Hepatic tuberculosis (TB) is rare, but recently it is more frequently detected. On imaging, it presents with different appearances and can mimic a variety of other conditions. A high degree of suspicion combined with appropriate diagnostic modalities and image-guided tissue sampling examination greatly aid in the timely diagnosis of the disease. The sights of this case report are to illustrate and discuss the different presentation of hepatic TB on computed tomography. This entity is frequently related to caseous necrosis, which is the hallmark of this disease. However, our patient didn’t have any liver lesion in spite of deranged liver function tests
