A 10 x 9 mm metastasis-like lesion in segment V of the liver was detected, when a 70-year-old man was operated on for adenocarcinoma of the stomach. Since exact diagnosis of the hepatic lesion could not be made by frozen sections, the lesion was excised, considering it to be a metastasis of gastric adenocarcinoma. Bacteriologic and pathologic studies established a diagnosis of isolated tuberculosis of the liver. A good response to antituberculous drug therapy was noted.
