Tuberculosis is one of the most common and well-documented infectious diseases, with a vast variety of clinical manifestations. A case of isolated hepatic tuberculosis mimicking liver tumor is presented. The patient was a 44-year-old man who had suffered from intermittent epigastralgia for about 2 years. Abdominal computed tomography demonstrated a low density mass with internal calcification over the left lobe of the liver. Celiac angiography showed encasement of the hepatic propia and occlusion of the left hepatic artery. Abnormal tortuous vascular structures were found at the hepatic hilar region. The patient underwent surgical intervention under the impression of left liver tumor. Microscopically, the resected liver tissue specimen revealed tuberculosis.
