Hepatomegaly occurring in association with an inhomogeneous liver documented on CT scanning in an individual with abnormal liver injury parameters is a common clinical finding. In most such cases, an increase in the canalicular enzymes (alkaline phosphatase and gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase) is present. Most individuals with this combination of findings are ill-appearing individuals with metastatic cancer. The same findings in an individual with few symptoms or one who appears quite fit is unusual and presents a unique problem in differential diagnosis. Herein we present such a case that, with appropriate medical therapy, had a near complete resolution of the biochemical and radiologic manifestations of disease.
