    Abstract

    A case with liver metastasis from papillary renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is presented, in which intratumoral fat was detected on dual-echo chemical shift magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The preoperative chemical shift MR image of the primary RCC also suggested the presence of intratumoral fat. Liver metastasis from fat-containing RCC should be included in the differential diagnosis of fat-containing liver masses as observed on chemical shift MRI.
