The authors here discuss twelve discrete pathologic entities that they found, in a review of over 500 abdominal CT scans, caused the appearance of a cystic lesion in the liver. The CT characteristics of the various lesions are illustrated, differential points in the patients' histories are noted, and gross and microscopic pathology specimens are correlated with the CT appearances to explain the CT findings. Lesions considered include: simple (bile duct) cyst, adult polycystic kidney disease, Caroli disease, pyogenic abscess, echinococcal cyst, amebic abscess, metastasis, biliary cystadenoma and cystadenocarcinoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, biloma, and extrapancreatic pseudocyst.
