Angiomyolipoma of the liver: ferumoxides-enhanced MR imaging.
Publication types: Case Reports ; Journal ArticlePublication Status: ppublish
We report a case of angiomyolipoma of the liver with emphasis on the appearance at MRI after administration of ferumoxides. Post-contrast T1- and T2-weighted images showed a frank decrease of signal intensity in a rim on the margin of the tumor. This unusual finding was related to the presence of an increased number of CD68-positive histiocytic cells in the periphery of the lesion and in the adjacent liver parenchyma.
