The article provides an answer to a quiz that seeks diagnosis on multiple cystic lesions found in a patient through computed tomography. Differential diagnosis includes autosomal dominant polycystic disease, peliosis hepatis, and Caroli disease. Another is the multiple simple liver cysts that are easy to identify in sonography. Moreover, it informs that the distinction to metastatic lesions may be difficult even though they present a small ring enhancement in CT.
