Abstract

In this paper, we report a case of a giant fast-growing cystic tumor of the liver in an eight-month-old child. Abdominal ultrasound and computed tomography performed in the preoperative stage revealed a mesenchymal hamartoma of the liver. The tumor was removed completely. Histological examination confirmed the mesenchymal hamartoma. Such a benign liver lesion is a very rare case. We are including the data highlighting the issues of etiology, pathogenesis and diagnostics of hamartomas of the liver in children.
