Hepatoblastoma is the most common primary malignant hepatic tumor except leukemia in infant and childhood.

Recently, we experienced a case of hepatoblastoma in a seven wonts old female patient with chief complaints of palpable mass on abdomen and night sweating for 3 days. Positive findings are reveled as follows : a) Hemoglobin 6.9㎎/dl, T-bilirubin 4.5㎎/dl, LDH 720 μ/㎖ b) Alpha-fetoprotein 400 ng/㎖(↑) c) Simple abdomen: mass crossing midline in upper abdomen I.V.P. : Large Mass in upper abdomen and enlarged liver d) Ultrasono : Semisolid marts in liver parenchyme So left hepatectomy was done. Grossly, the tumor is rather firm, lobulated and well circumscribed measuring 11×10×7㎝ in dimension and 520 gm in weight. Cut surface stows pale grayish in color with areas of multifocal hemorrhagic areas. Microscopically, the tumor composed of m mainly solid cord of dark stained hepatocytes, pale stained cells, osteiod components and intermingled with extramedullary hematopoiesis.
