Undifferentiated Embryonal Sarcoma of the Liver: a Great Masquerader
- 8 Downloads
Undifferentiated embryonal sarcoma of the liver (UESL) is a rare primary tumor in adults. Misdiagnosis is largely due to its infrequency in adult patients, the absence of specific diagnostic blood tests, and lack of classic radiologic findings. This is a case of a 33-year-old Asian male who presented with a painful hepatic mass and fevers thought initially to be infectious, but later diagnosed as UESL which was successfully resected.
