From: Hepatic steatosis secondary to capecitabine: a case report

Figure 1

Capecitabine-induced hepatic steatosis in a 74-year-old woman. Dual-echo, chemical shift gradient-echo T1-weighted magnetic resonance images show no evidence of hepatic steatosis which is demonstrated by the signal intensity of the liver on the in-phase (TR/TE, 150/4.5) image (A) similar to that of the out-of-phase (150/2.3) image (B). Three-month follow-up magnetic resonance images after treatment with capecitabine clearly show newly developed severe hepatic steatosis which is seen as a drop of the signal intensity of the liver on the out-of-phase (150/2.3) image (C) compared with the in-phase (150/4.5) image (D).
