Abstract:

This review is focused on the special issues and challenges confronting physicians and surgeons caring for an unborn child, or a newborn with a liver tumor. Liver tumors at this age are very rare and they make it difficult for pediatric surgeons to gain experience necessary to obtain good results. On the other hand, adult hepatobiliary surgeons faced with a fetus or infant with a liver mass are ill equipped to care for the patient even if they have done a high volume of adult liver surgery and are expert in the field. Often a team approach is the best solution.

Keywords: Hepatic hemangioma, hepatoblastoma, liver neoplasms, mesenchymal hamartoma of the liver, neonate, neuroblastoma, rhabdoid tumor.
