ABSTRACT: Mesenchymal hamartoma of the liver is a rare benign tumor. It accounts for about 5 percent of all primary liver tumors in children. So far only 140 cases have been reported in world literature. Mesenchymal hamartoma per se is not a maligant disease, but lack of treatment may cause death. Thus early operative invervention is advisable. a large mesenchymal hamartoma of the right lobe of the liver presented with right upper abdominal mass for a short duration. After clinical and investigative evaluation, laparotomy and right liver lobe resection were done. There was an initial liver function derangement. However, the child recovered completely with proper supportive measures. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of mesenchymal hamartoma.
