OBJECTIVE. The objective of this article is to provide a practical review of the conditions other than cirrhosis that can result in diffuse surface nodularity of the liver or portal hypertension. CONCLUSION. Conditions that can mimic cirrhosis on imaging include pseudocirrhosis of treated breast cancer metastases to the liver, fulminant hepatic failure, miliary metastases, sarcoidosis, schistosomiasis, congenital hepatic fibrosis, idiopathic portal hypertension, early primary biliary cirrhosis, chronic Budd-Chiari syndrome, chronic portal vein thrombosis, and nodular regenerative hyperplasia.
