Abstract

Infantile haemangio-endothelioma of liver is the most common symptomatic vascular tumour of liver. A 6-month-old female was admitted for evaluation of a mass in the right hypochondrium. It extended 5 cm below the right costal margin. USG of the liver revealed multiple hypo-echoic lesions within the liver. Non-contrast CT images showed multiple hypo-attenuating masses of lower density than the surrounding liver. A postcontrast CT revealed intense enhancement of all the lesions. The findings suggested an infantile haemangio-endothelioma of the liver. On follow-up USG after 8 months near complete involution of the mass was revealed.
