Hepatoblastoma: A type of liver tumor that occurs in infants and children.
Source: National Institute of Health

Hepatoblastoma: Hepatoblastoma is a malignant liver neoplasm that occurs almost exclusively in infants, although isolated instances in older children and adults have been reported. Grossly, hepatoblastoma is solid, well circumscribed, and more often solitary than multiple. Microscopically, most of the tumors are composed exclusively of immature hepatocytic elements. About a fourth of hepatoblastomas contain a stromal component which may be undifferentiated or develop into bone or cartilage. The treatment of choice of hepatoblastoma is surgical excision with adjuvant therapy. Liver transplantation is being increasingly used as well. --2002
