We report the case of a 22-year-old female with primary sclerosing cholangitis who was found, during hepatic imaging, to have a large liver mass. Imaging techniques and histological examination confirmed the mass to be focal nodular hyperplasia. A review of the literature indicates that the simultaneous occurrence of these two hepatic pathologies is unique. The differential diagnosis of hepatic masses in primary sclerosing cholangitis is discussed. Focal nodular hyperplasia needs to be included in the differential diagnosis of hepatic lesions in primary sclerosing cholangitis.
