Core Tip Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is more difficult to treat and has a higher mortality rate than other carcinomas, emphasizing the importance of early diagnosis. Radiologic examination is crucial for diagnosing HCC. If characteristic findings and underlying liver disease are present, a diagnosis can be made, but when HCC is accompanied by a liver abscess, diagnosis may be delayed by atypical radiologic findings. The present patient was hospitalized for an organized liver abscess with calcification but was subsequently diagnosed with HCC. This case report aims to assist in the diagnosis of HCC, which can manifest in various forms.
