Described herein is the case of an 8-year-old boy who developed a hepatic nodular lesion after having received anti-neoplastic therapy for nephroblastoma. Histological examination of the excised specimen indicated a disordered arrangement of hepatic components with hemangioma-like features. This case was diagnosed as a variant of focal nodular hyperplasia. It is speculated that this hepatic lesion is a late complication of treatment for nephroblastoma and might develop from congenital malformative area of the liver.
