Radiographic Impressions:

Abdominal mass lesion likely liver.  Differentials should include neoplasia as well as polycystic kidney disease, granulomatous, abscessation cannot be ruled out. Bilateral nephrocalcinosis.

Ultrasonographic Impressions:

Numerous masses of differing size and differing appearance within the liver. Differentials should include cystadenomas multiple and of differing size. Other malignant neoplasia cannot be ruled out. Polycystic liver disease also should be considered. Abscessation less likely but cannot be completely ruled out. Fine needle aspirates of the more echogenic solid appearing liver as well as cystic area were done under ultrasound guidance with no immediate complications.
