  • Pediatric liver tumors - a pictorial review EUROPEAN RADIOLOGY Jha, P., Chawla, S. C., Tavri, S., Patel, C., Gooding, C., Daldrup-Link, H. 2009; 19 (1): 209-219


    Hepatic masses constitute about 5-6% of all intra-abdominal masses in children. The majority of liver tumors in children are malignant; these malignant liver tumors constitute the third most common intra-abdominal malignancy in the pediatric age group after Wilms' tumor and neuroblastoma. Only about one third of the liver tumors are benign. A differential diagnosis of liver tumors in children can be obtained based on the age of the child, clinical information (in particular AFP) and imaging characteristics. The purpose of this review is to report typical clinical and imaging characteristics of benign and malignant primary liver tumors in children.
