A wide variety of hepatic lesions contain fat within them in a proportion good enough to be demonstrable on imaging. With the biological behaviors quite different from each other, they form a clinico-radio-pathologic spectrum worth remembering. We present a review of common and uncommon focal hepatic lesions containing fat (micro- and macroscopic) within them and emphasize the role of imaging in their diagnosis.
