Hepatic adenomatosis is an uncommon benign neoplasm, with the presence of multiple adenomas (generally more than 4) within the liver. A 52-yearold woman presented with multiple (>10) solid liver lesions detected with abdominal ultrasonography and verified with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Subsequently, F-18 FDG PET/CT demonstrated increased uptake in these lesions. Histology revealed hepatic adenomatosis. F-18 FDG PET/CT cannot reliably differentiate hepatic adenomas from malignant processes on the basis of uptake.
