Abstract

Hepatic vascular lesions are not an uncommon finding in children, and represent the most common benign liver tumours to present in infancy. We present a case of a complex vascular malformation with an intrahepatic component suggestive of a venous/arteriovenous malformation as well as a large extrahepatic lesion. The extrahepatic mass was present in both sub- and supra-diaphragmatic locations ,with features of a congenital haemangioma.

In view of the clinical presentation and different imaging appearances, this case was felt to be interesting in its radiological workup, management and eventual unusual pathology.
