Hepatic infarction is an uncommon entity because of the dual blood supply to the liver. We report a case in which multimodalities demonstrate infarction of the left lobe of the liver secondary to left portal vein occlusion by an invasive cholangiocarcinoma. A 99mTc-DISIDA hepatobiliary scan showed complete absence of activity to the left of the gallbladder fossa. The differential diagnosis of absent hepatic activity on a hepatobiliary scan must include hepatic infarction.
