Case 55: Cirrhosis
56 year old man with end stage liver disease.
CT: Confluent fibrosis, left lobe
CT shows alcoholic cirrhosis and severely distorted liver parenchyma. Note typical strong enhancement of confluent fibrosis in the left lobe on the equilibrium phase, causing tethering of the falciform ligament and anterior abdominal wall. Confluent fibrosis like this example may mimic fibrotic tumors, such as cholangiocarcinoma.
