Abstract

MACHADO, Márcio Martins et al. Multiple small hyperechogenic liver nodules without posterior acoustic reverberation: another presentation of bile duct hamartomas. Radiol Bras [online]. 2005, vol.38, n.5, pp. 389-391. ISSN 0100-3984.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842005000500016.

Sonographic presentation of bile duct hamartomas is variable. It is important to recognize their different forms of presentation in order to be included in the differential diagnosis of multiple focal hepatic lesions. Herein the authors report a case of bile duct hamartomas that was identified as multiple diffuse hyperechogenic liver nodules with the largest measuring 1.6 cm, without posterior acoustic reverberation.

Keywords : Liver; Bile duct hamartomas; von Meyenburg complex; Ultrasonography.
