MRI and PET-CT Failed to Differentiate Between Hepatic Malignancy and Brucelloma


Schreiber, Peter W; Schmid, Adrian; Fagagnini, Stefania; Kröger, Arne; Vrugt, Bart; Reiner, Cäcilia S; Boggian, Katia; Schiesser, Marc; Müllhaupt, Beat; Günthard, Huldrych F (2018). MRI and PET-CT Failed to Differentiate Between Hepatic Malignancy and Brucelloma. Open Forum Infectious Diseases, 5(4):ofy052.

Abstract

Brucellosis is a common, worldwide zoonosis. Clinical presentation is protean and often goes unrecognized. Hepatic brucelloma is a rare local complication of chronic brucellosis. We report a case in which magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography imaging prompted suspicion of a hepatic malignancy. Diagnosis was ultimately made by serology and polymerase chain reaction of resected liver tissue.
