Infantile hepatic hemangioma is benign vascular tumor and the most common liver tumor in infants. Small hepatic hemangioma is usually asymptomatic and seldom require therapy. Giant hepatic hemangioma, defined as more than 4 cm in diameter, is rare, but can lead to life-threatening complications such as consumptive coagulopathy, anemia, hemorrhage after tumor rupture and congestive heart failure due to arteriovenous shunting. Neonatal mortality rate is about 70-90%. The differential diagnosis of a fetal liver mass includes hemangioma, hepatoblastoma, and mesenchymal harmatoma. Although hepatic hemangioma represents the most common tumor of the liver in infant, the prenatal diagnosis of this condition has been rarely reported in the literature. we experienced a case of fetal hepatic hemangioma by prenatal sonography and report our case with a brief review of literature.
