Case description

Usually liver does not possess any grooves on its diaphragmatic surface, but there are reports on the presence of grooves on this surface. Diaphragmatic sulci in the superior surface of the liver were found in 40% of cases at autopsy. All sulci were located in the right lobe and in 47% they were multiple. The pressure exerted by the diaphragm as a whole may be responsible for the production of sulci at the level of liver weak zones (as in our case).
