Hepatoblastoma is the most common primary liver tumor for children under 5 years of age. It usually presents as an abdominal mass, symptomatic only when large enough to cause mass effect on nearby organs. Symptoms such as early satiety, anorexia, abdominal pain or weight loss are the most common. Diagnosis depends on imaging studies, AFP levels and percutaneous biopsy. Treatment modality is usually surgical with neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
