The CT appearance of focal and diffuse fatty infiltration of the liver has been described in recent radiologic literature. Previous reports of focal steatosis have emphasized the differential diagnosis of the solitary lesion. We report a case of multifocal hepatic involvement and describe a new radiologic sign that is useful in differentiating this process from neoplasia.
