Abstract

Hepatoblastoma in, adults is a rare malignancy that presents in the epithelial or mixed epithelial-mesenchymal variants. We report two cases, the former representing the epithelial and the latter the mixed type. A 21 year-old woman with epigastric pain had abdominal ultrasound and CT scans showing a large hepatic mass; A right trisegmentectomy wasperformed. The first and second recurrences were treated by resection. The third recurrence was treated by hepatic transarterial chemo-embolization, systemic chemotherapy and 19 percutaneous alcohol injections. A careful follow up by abdominal ultrasound and CT scans was able todetect the recurrence at an early stage. The patient is well at 151 months. A 39 year-old man with epigastric pain, and dyspepsia had upper-GI series and abdominal CT scan, showing a left hepatic mass involving the stomach. Liver resection and Billroth II hemigastrectomy were performed. A recurrence involving the Left hepatic lobe, the spleen and the remaining stomach occurred 15 months later and the patient died from multi organ. failure. Surgery is the treatment of choice of hepatoblastoma in, adults. Recurrences can also be treated aggressively by surgical resections if no extrahepatic organs are involved. Other therapeutic modalities can be attempted whenever surgery is not possible.
