Conclusion

Both patients had biopsy proven non Hodgkin's disease in and around the liver. The first patient had a lymphoma with mainly perportal and perhepatic masses. The second patient had a diffuse abnormal liver filled with tiny lesions. Lymphoma of the liver usually has larger hypoechoic intrahepatic lesions, but the aspect can vary. The aspect is usually hyoechoic.
