Figure 2. (A) Abdominal MRI with contrast, coronal plane. (B) Abdominal MRI with contrast, transverse plane. Multiloculated cystic mass, which is hyperintense in T2, hypointense in T1, with diffusion restriction and peripheral enhancement postcontrast. It involves the hepatic parenchyma (segments I, II, and IV), subphrenic space and the right hemidiaphragm, with approximate dimensions of 50×106×171 mm. At the base of the right hemithorax, an image of similar characteristics is identified, which has dimensions of 48×76×71 mm. In the hepatic segment II, a small 8-mm cyst is identified.
