Few causes of hepatoblastoma have been conclusively identified, mainly due to the extreme rarity of the disease. Inherited conditions including Familial Adenomatous Polyposis and Beckwith–Wiedemann Syndrome dramatically raise risk of hepatoblastoma but account for few cases overall. A small number of case–control studies investigating risk factors for sporadic hepatoblastoma have been conducted to date. Although most of these studies feature fewer than 200 cases, several clues have emerged… Expand
Advanced Hepatoblastoma: A Review of Current Management Strategies
Abstract Hepatoblastoma (HB) is an embryonal tumor comprising nearly 1% of all pediatric malignancies and more than 90% of all liver tumors in patients under 5 years of age. The incidence of HB isExpand
The Genetic Changes of Hepatoblastoma
TLDR
The molecular epidemiology, especially SNPs progresses in hepatoblastoma, is reviewed and discussed to provide references for future studies and promote the study of hepatOBlastoma’s etiology. Expand
Hepatoblastoma in a Child With Early-onset Cirrhosis.
TLDR
A young patient with cirrhosis attributed to early-onset hereditary hemochromatosis who was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma with uncommon histologic findings, evidence of chemotherapy resistance who ultimately succumbed to her disease is described. Expand
Polycystic liver coexistent with hepatoblastoma : a case report of misdiagnosis
Hepatoblastoma (HB) complicated with polycystic liver disease (PLD) is a rare disease. Herein, we report a 14 years old girl with hepatoblastoma misdiagnosed with polycystic liver with intracysticExpand
Hepatoblastoma and Wolf–Hirschhorn syndrome: Coincidence or a new feature of a rare disease?
TLDR
A pediatric patient with Wolf–Hirschhorn syndrome who developed hepatoblastoma is reported, which is a rare case and is not a frequent feature of the syndrome. Expand
Hepatoblastoma in Explanted Livers of Patients With Biliary Atresia
TLDR
In this cohort, HB was found to coexist in approximately 2% of patients with BA undergoing LTx, far exceeding the hypothetical anticipated incidence of 1:10 billion for the concomitant diagnoses. Expand
Hepatoblastoma in a 15‐month‐old female with trisomy 13
TLDR
This is the first reported case of hepatoblastoma in a child with constitutional T13, and may represent a non‐random association, as somatic trisomy of chromosome 13 in hepatOBlastoma tumors has been previously described in the literature. Expand
Hepatoblastoma in Infants Born to Parents with Familial Adenomatous Polyposis
TLDR
The history, genetic basis, and treatment of HB in general and in patients with FAP are described and the potential benefits of early genetic testing for FAP and image-based screening for HB in infants born to parents with APC gene mutations are discussed. Expand
Hepatoblastoma Arising in a Pigmented &bgr;-catenin-activated Hepatocellular Adenoma: Case Report and Review of the Literature
TLDR
A unique case of hepatoblastoma arising in a background of 2 &bgr;-catenin-activated HCAs, one of which is pigmented, in a 4-year-old child and the first case of a P-HCA in a child is presented. Expand
Hepatoblastoma: Review of Pathology, Diagnosis and Modern Treatment Strategies
Hepatoblastoma (HB) is the most common primary malignant hepatic tumor of childhood and, occurring predominantly in the first two years of life. Approximately 100 cases are diagnosed every year inExpand

Risk of hepatoblastoma in familial adenomatous polyposis.
TLDR
Infantile and childhood hepatoblastoma occurs more frequently in persons heterozygous for the familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) gene than in the general population, and an empiric risk of less than 1% can be cited to persons with FAP for their children. Expand
Hepatoblastoma in the Nordic countries
TLDR
It is indicated that intrauterine and/or neonatal factors are associated with increased risk of hepatoblastoma, which may include low birth weight and asphyxia leading to neonatal intensive care. Expand
Hepatitis virus B is not a risk factor in hepatoblastoma patients.
  • V. Wiwanitkit
  • Medicine
  • Asian Pacific journal of cancer prevention : APJCP
  • 2005
TLDR
No correlation between prevalence rate and nationality of the studied population and hepatitis B infection does not appear to be a contributing factor for hepatoblastoma, and further studies are needed to clarify which are the risk factors for the liver cancer. Expand
Hepatoblastoma and low birth weight
TLDR
An updated estimate of the rate of increase of HB incidence in the United States and its association with a rise in the proportion of births that are low (%LBW: 1,500–2,500 g) and especially very low birth weight (%VLBW):<1, 500 g is provided to provide an updated estimate. Expand
Maternal and infant birth characteristics and hepatoblastoma.
TLDR
A case-cohort study using public health surveillance data sets to examine perinatal risk factors for hepatoblastoma found having a birth weight less than 1,000 g was associated with a strongly increased risk of hepatoblenoma. Expand
Hepatoblastoma and prune belly syndrome: a potential association
TLDR
The occurrence of PBS and HBL in these patients constitutes a novel potential association, and the subjects lacked genetic, natal, or environmental factors known to confer risk of HBL. Expand
Germline APC Mutations Are Not Commonly Seen in Children With Sporadic Hepatoblastoma
TLDR
No germline APC mutations were found, which does not support the need for routine screening in sporadic hepatoblastoma in the absence of a suggestive family history of colorectal cancer or suspicion of familial adenomatous polyposis. Expand
Multifocal hepatoblastoma in a 6-month-old girl with trisomy 18: a case report
TLDR
Careful clinical and post-mortem studies are needed to recognize the real frequency of hepatoblastoma in children with trisomy 18, who might die from different causes with unrecognizable hepatOBlastoma. Expand
A rare case of aicardi syndrome with severe brain malformation and hepatoblastoma
TLDR
This is the first reported case of Aicardi syndrome associated with hepatoblastoma, and may provide a link between teratogenicity and oncogenicity. Expand
The spectrum of APC mutations in children with hepatoblastoma from familial adenomatous polyposis kindreds.
TLDR
A review of reported FAP kindreds with hepatoblastoma and a review of family histories suggestive of FAP may provide information helpful in counseling families with FAP. Expand
