Abstract

Undifferentiated (embryonal) sarcoma of the liver is a rare primary malignant tumor of the liver occurring almost exclusively in childhood with characterisitic findings on gross and microscopy. Careful sampling of the tumor shows various immature undifferentiated elements and infiltration of the tumor into the surrounding capsule. CT findings could be suggestive of a hamartoma, as in our case. We report a case of hepatic embryonal sarcoma in a ten-year old male child presenting with an abdominal mass.
