Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In summary, we report a case of recurrent leiomyosarcoma metastatic to the liver that mimicked polycystic liver disease. Leiomyosarcoma can be so necrotic that it is mistaken for cystic lesions. It is important to differentiate cystic lesions of the liver because the treatment strategy varies.
