Abstract
Inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT) is a relatively rare and benign disease
characterized by chronic inflammatory cell infiltration with fibrosis. It is
difficult to diagnose IPT because of the absence of specific symptoms or
unique radiological findings. IPT can be mistaken for a malignant tumor,
such as cholangiocarcinoma or hepatocellular carcinoma, due to their
similar clinical and radiological findings. Unfortunately, hepatic resection
is often performed due to misdiagnosis. Presented here is a case of a
woman aged over 60 years who presented with general weakness
lasting more than one month and unexplained body weight loss.
