The article presents the case of a 34-year old woman with a medical history of dull iliac fossa pain associated with a vague mass. Ultrasound showed a subcutaneous lipoma in the region of the abdominal mass with multiple hyperechoic lesions in the liver. An urgent computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging scan the abdomen to characterize the multiple liver lesions.
