Abstract:  Primary hepatic neoplasms in children are relatively infrequent, accounting for between 0.5 and 2.0% of all pediatric neoplasms. They are a diverse group of epithelial and mesenchymal tumors whose incidence can vary considerably with patient age. They are clinically relevant tumors however as two thirds of them are malignant. The therapy of these tumors has evolved over time and it currently involves a combination of surgery, adjuvant and neoadjuvant chemotherapy and possible… 
Liver neoplasia in children.
Hepatic angiosarcoma of childhood: a case report and review of literature.
Pediatric liver tumors – a pictorial review
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to report typical clinical and imaging characteristics of benign and malignant primary liver tumors in children.
Hepatocellular carcinoma bone metastasis in an 11-year-old boy
TLDR
A rare case of an 11-year-old boy who presented with HCC of the right liver lobe followed by multiple osseous metastases, confirmed by imaging and biopsy is described.
Tumors Other than Hepatoblastoma and Hepatocellular Carcinoma
TLDR
There is no single common treatment scheme for hepatic mesenchymal tumors and, in contrast to hepatoblastoma, large and controlled patient series are still lacking, owing to the rarity of the lesions.
Current imaging strategies of primary and secondary neoplasms of the liver.
TLDR
The roles of magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and ultrasound are evaluated, with recommendations for their effective use and pitfalls in imaging related to posttreatment changes and unusual patterns of metastatic disease.
Benign liver tumors in pediatric patients - Review with emphasis on imaging features.
TLDR
The most frequently encountered benign liver tumors in children are discussed, as well as a comparison to the current knowledge regarding such tumors in adult patients, and future perspectives of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in pediatric patients are highlighted.
Is primary hepatic angiosarcoma in children an indication for liver transplantation?—A single‐centre experience and review of the literature
TLDR
PHA in paediatric patients should be recommended to LT in selected patients, and effect of modern adjuvant chemo and RT should be evaluated further based on international registry for such rare cases of PHA.
Liver tumors in children with metabolic disorders.
TLDR
The most common metabolic disorders that are associated with a heightened risk of developing hepatocellular neoplasms are reviewed, with a special emphasis on reviewing recent advances in the molecular pathogenesis of the disorders and pre-clinical therapeutic options.
Pediatric Malignant Liver Tumors: Results of a Single Center
TLDR
High incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma in this series is thought to be due to the high incidence of hepatitis B infection in Tur- key, and children with chronic hepatitis B virus infection should be followed up keeping in mind the risk of HCC.

TLDR
Primary hepatic tumours are rare in childhood with a male-to-female ratio of 2:1 and mesenchymal components encountered in the mixed type were cartilage, bone, and spindle sarcomatous cells.

TLDR
Hepatoblastoma is the most common primary liver tumor in children, accounting for just over 1% of pediatric cancers, and the outcome for those with nonresectable or recurrent disease is poor.

TLDR
The main epidemiological aspects of malignant epithelial and nonepithelial liver tumors of children, clinical aspects at presentation of disease, and diagnostic evaluation with biological and imaging studies are reviewed.

TLDR
Whether children with the fibrolamellar (FL) histologic variant of HCC have a more favorable presentation, increased surgical resectability, greater response to therapy, and improved outcome compared with children who have typical HCC is analyzed.
