Cystic liver metastases from carcinoid tumors are rare. We describe a 46-year-old male who presented with right-sided heart failure with a polycystic liver disease on contrast enhanced computed tomography of abdomen. The fine needle aspiration cytology from the liver lesion showed metastatic neuroendocrine tumor with the primary in the rectum.
