Abstract


Peliosis hepatis is a rare benign disorder of the liver, histologically characterized by blood-filled cystic cavities of various sizes and irregular shapes, communicating with the hepatic sinusoids. Only a few cases of peliosis hepatis have been described using contrast enhanced ultrasound showing admittedly various dynamic enhancement patterns. We present a case of peliosis hepatis with a typical target-sign enhancement depicted by means of contrast enhanced ultrasound.
