Abstract

Neonatal Hemangioendothelioma (HE) is the most common type of hepatic vascular tumor that presents in infancy. HE generally undergo spontaneous regression within a year, but it may become symptomatic and be associated with life-threatening complications including congestive heart failure, consumptive coagulopathy and hepatic rupture. We report five cases of neonatal hepatic HE with brief review of the literatures. The report include a case of HE associated with AV malformation complicated by congestive heart failure who was successfully treated by hepatic artery embolization, a case of HE associated with transposition of great artery (TGA), and three cases of asymptomatic HE with spontaneous involution.
