Core tip: Inflammatory pseudo-tumour (IPT) is extremely rare pre-operative diagnosis. It’s a benign condition which does not require surgical management and it rarely self resolves. Our case so unique in appearance that IPT generally are solitary and if multiple generally confined on lobe of liver. In our case this tumour mimicked metastasis and presented in bilobar presentation. It resolved in 5 wk something which is never reported in medical literature.
