Summary

A 41-year-old woman with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in the liver was treated with percutaneous ethanol injection therapy. Ethanol injection was performed twice under ultrasonographic guidance for a lesion inside the liver and once under peritoneoscopic observation for lesions on the surface of the liver. CT performed after treatment showed that sizes of the lesions decreased and that the lesions were not enhanced by contrast medium, indicating Iack of blood supply and necrosis of the lesion. Ultrasonography performed after treatment did not show any lesions in the liver. There was no sign of recurrence or metastasis.
