Hepatoblastoma

Case contributed by A.Prof Frank Gaillard

Patient Data

Age: 2 years
Gender: Male
CT

Multilobulated low density mass in segments 5 and 6 without convincing enhancement or evidence of calcification. 

MRI

MRI confirms the presence of the mass, which is of heterogeneous high T2 signal, and low T1 signal, with peripheral enhancement, best seen on the arterial phase, peripherally.

Case Discussion

In this age group features are most consistent with a hepatoblastoma, which was subsequently confirmed on histology.
