Rare cases of inflammatory pseudotumor (IPT) in two adolescents are reported. Both of them presented with significant weight loss and were operated upon with the impression of liver abscess and malignant liver tumor. These two cases are reported to emphasize IPT of the liver as a differential diagnosis of hepatic masses in children because recognition of this condition before operation can avoid unnecessary surgery.
