We report a case of stage 4S neuroblastoma in which CT showed diffuse liver metastases containing a geographical fatty area in the periportal region. MRI showed this abnormality to correspond to an area with an unusual pattern of fatty change. (123)I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scintigraphy demonstrated increased accumulation throughout the liver, except for the region showing fatty change. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of liver metastases from neuroblastoma with geographical fatty infiltration.
