dc.description.abstract OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this pictorial essay is to identify different types of liver lesions that contain fat. Cross-sectional imaging findings of fat- or lipid-containing lesions can help in characterizing focal liver lesions. We searched our archive retrospectively and reviewed the literature for fat-containing liver lesions and identified 16 different types. CONCLUSION. These lesions can contain macroscopic fat (i.e., angiomyolipoma, lipoma, liposarcoma, hydatid cyst, lipopeliosis, adrenal rest tumor, pseudolipoma, hepatic teratoma, pericaval fat, extramedullary hematopoiesis, and metastases) or intracellular lipid (i.e., focal steatosis, adenoma, focal nodular hyperplasia, regenerative nodules, and hepatocellular carcinoma). CT, MRI, and sonographic findings of these lesions can help in characterization by allowing specific diagnosis or narrowing the differential diagnosis of liver lesions. © American Roentgen Ray Society.
