Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Hepatoblastoma accounts for only 0.5% of all paediatric tumours. The vast majority of these cases are seen under five years of age and a third of patients have some form of congenital anomaly syndrome or other childhood tumour. Most recent classification describes six subtypes of hepatoblastoma. Surgical resection is the best treatment preceded by accurate staging and chemotherapy or radiotherapy. Hepatoblastoma can be diagnosed by Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC). We report here three cases of hepatoblastoma diagnosed by FNAC and subsequently confirmed by histopathology following resection of hepatic tumours.
