Clinical Brief

Abstract

Congenital anomalies involving the lobes of the liver are rare. Hypoplasia and agenesis occur more often in the left lobe. Agenesis of the right lobe is a rare anomaly with only about 42 cases reported in literature. In this communique we report one such case of agenesis of the right lobe of liver. A brief review of literature is made and its diagnosis and differential diagnosis are discussed.

Key words
