Primary malignant mesothelioma is a rarity among malignant liver tumors. We present the case of a 48-year-old woman presenting with increasing upper abdominal discomfort and inappetence accompanied by a weight loss of approximately 10 kg. CT and MRI revealed a highly suspicious mass lesion in the liver. 18F-FDG PET/CT performed for staging showed a pathological 18F-FDG uptake of the known liver tumor. Histology and immunohistochemistry indicated mesothelioma of the liver. Herein we present a rare case of primary mesothelioma in the liver with CT, MRI, and 18F-FDG PET/CT.
