Abstract

Even with advance prenatal diagnostic tools, differentiating among specific types of hepatic masses continues to challenge many physicians. Here, we report a neonate with life-threatening hepatic mass, cardiac failure, and disseminated intravascular coagulopathy, which clinically resembled hepatic hemangioma. A hepatic mesenchymal hamartoma was detected by postmortem pathology.
