Malakoplakia, a rare chronic granulomatous disease that often associates with immunosuppression or immunodeficiency, has been reported to affect many organs, mainly in the genitourinary tract. Herein, we report a case of malakoplakia of the liver in a 44-year-old man with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome who was poorly compliant with highly active antiretroviral therapy and subsequently died of multiple systemic infections. Malakoplakia of the liver was observed incidentally on autopsy.
