2019 ADVANCED ULTRASOUND IN DIAGNOSIS AND THERAPY  
Solitary necrotic nodule of liver (SNNL) is a rare, benign lesion with an uncertain etiology. There are no typical diagnostic clinical or radiological features. The two patients we described underwent liver resection because it was not possible to exclude a malignancy on preoperative imaging. The histopathological findings suggest the SNNL may be parasitic in origin and find parasitic worm in the nodules.
