SNNL is a rare, benign lesion which may arise from trauma, a sclerosing haemangioma or it may represent a burned out phase of various conditions like parasitic infections, or chronic infections like tuberculosis. Histopathology provides the definite diagnosis, which thus helps clinicians in allaying unnecessary anxiety of the patient and in planning proper management.We are reporting two cases here, which had solitary necrotic nodules of liver (SNNL), with emphasis on the aetiology and morphology of the lesions. SNNL was incidentally detected during cholecystectomy done in both young female patients. The lesion was solitary in one case and it was multiple in the other. The suspected aetiology in one of the cases was parasitic, whereas it was tuberculosis in the other. The clinical features in both cases were suggestive of neoplasms.
