We report the case of a 40-year-old man who was initially diagnosed with multicentric hepatocarcinoma (HCC), which was initially treated by hepatectomy, but with tumor recurrence one year later. He received a liver transplant from a living related donor and three months after the transplant developed multiple liver lesions strongly suggestive of tumor recurrence, but which turned out to be inflammatory pseudotumors that responded to conservative treatment.
