In this series of articles on comments and illustrations of the World Federation for Medicine and Biology (WFUMB) guidelines on contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS), the topics on very rare focal liver lesions (FLL) are discussed. This article describes the diverse changes of focal liver lesions in peliosis hepatis and the typical changes in porphyria. Although the focus is on the appearance on ultrasound and CEUS, the clinical context is always considered. While peliosis may be a surprising finding on puncture, lesions in porphyria cutanea tarda may be typical visual diagnoses that obviate the need for biopsy. If only you knew. This article aims to sharpen the clinician’s eye. It provides knowledge of the clinical presentation and US and CEUS imaging of peliosis hepatis and porphyria.
