A 63-year-old male patient, who presented with a hypoechoic solitary nodule detected during an abdominal ultrasound, was suspected of having hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) following additional imaging examinations such as CT and MRI. In order to confirm the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma, a liver tissue biopsy was conducted, and this case was diagnosed as an eosinophilic liver abscess. Eosinophilic liver abscess can present with various radiological findings, and in Korea, they are not an uncommon condition. It may be beneficial to assess peripheral blood eosinophil counts before conducting additional imaging studies in cases where a solitary lesion is identified on abdominal ultrasound, as this can aid in the diagnosis.
