Inflammatory pseudotumor of the Aver is a rare benign lesion that usually has been discovered at laparotomy. This lesion is inflamrhatory and reactive, but the etiology remains unknown. In-flammatory pseudotumor of the liver is of the interest not only because of its rarity also because it needs to be clinically differentiated from hepatocellular carcinoma and other malignant tu-mors. In this report, we describe a case of inflammatory pseudotumor of the liver with fever and weight loss in a 46-year-old male. Grossly, the lesion showed a rather well demarcated, gray white to pale yellowish nodular mass mesuring 7 x 5.5 x 5 cm in dimensions. M icroscqpically, the tumor was composed of diffuse infiltration of predominantly plasma cells, lymphocytes and histocytes associated with fibroblastic proliferation.
