Aims:  to study various anomalies of liver morphology collected from cadavers. Materials   and   methods:    A   total   of   30   formalin   fixed   cadaveric   livers   (n=30),   irrespective   of   the   sex,   were   taken   for   this   study   in   the   Department   of   Anatomy, Silchar   Medical   College,   Silchar   and   Gauhati   Medical   College,   Guwahati,   Assam.   Four   abnormal   livers   were   found.   These   livers   were   then   preserved   and studied under day light. Results:  four livers under study were examined and different types of morphological variations were observed among them. Conclusion : Anomalies in liver morphology are important for radiologist to prevent confusion during imaging and also help surgeons to plan surgeries.
