Abstract

Undifferentiated Embryonal Liver Sarcoma (UELS) accounts about 13% of all malignant liver tumors in children. We present a case of 7-year- old boy with a large hepatic mass diagnosed incidentally after a blunt abdominal trauma. An extended right hepatectomy was performed. The postoperative pathology showed an UELS. The patient received postoperative chemotherapy. After more one year the computed tomography showed no evidence of recurrence. UELS is a potential treatable malignancy when treated with chemotherapy after complete surgical resection.
