Abstract

Lymphoma with hepatic involvement can present with three morphological patterns: diffuse infiltrative, nodular, and mixed infiltrative-nodular. However, lymphoma with periportal infiltrative hepatic involvement is rare. There have been a few reports of cases with this type of hepatic involvement including ultrasound or computed tomography (CT) findings. In this case report, we present CT, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and diffusion-weighted MRI findings together with the histopathological results for a patient with periportal hepatic lymphoma presenting with obstructive jaundice.
