Liver penetration is a rare but serious complication of peptic ulcer disease. We report a 60-year-old man, without any serious risk factor for peptic ulcer, presented with mild abdominal discomfort, food-related vomiting and weight loss, and a mass in the left hepatic lobe, which was the result of a silent duodenal ulcer penetration. The diagnosis was based on histological examination of the endoscopic biopsies.
