Multifocal liver lesions in children are infrequently seen in routine practice. The present study was conducted to assess multifocal liver lesions in children with MRI.
Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 24 children of age ranged 6-14 years with liver lesions of both genders. All were subjected to MR imaging using either a 1.5 T Siemens MRI scanners. All MRIs were evaluated by two pediatric radiologists
Results: Out of 24 patients, boys were 14 and girls were 10. Common lesions were focal nodular hyperplasia in 8, hemangioma in 5, regenerative nodules in 3, adenoma in 3, abscess in 1, metastases in 2, angiomyolipoma in 1 and hepatic cyst in 1. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: Common lesions were focal nodular hyperplasia, hemangioma, regenerative nodules, adenoma, abscess, metastases, angiomyolipoma and hepatic cyst.
