Focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) is a relatively common condition, the diagnosis of which is now regularly made with diagnostic imaging. Cases of multiple FNH (more than four lesions) are rare, however, and the presence of numerous lesions may complicate the workup and diagnosis. We recently treated a young woman with multiple FNH. We report this case to highlight the clinical issues presented by this rare variant of a common benign hepatic disease.
