A distinctive mass in the liver in a two-month-old girl with elevated serum alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) level was diagnosed as telangiectatic focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) after biopsy. The tumor spontaneously regressed and finally became no longer detectable by any imaging study within normal range of AFP. The nature of this novel entity and its management are discussed based on literature review.
