Mesenchymal hamartoma of the liver is a benign tumor with good prognosis that usually manifests in childhood before the age of two. Abdominal distension and the presence of a hepatic mass are the most common symptoms; anorexia, vomiting and signs of compression have been reported. The diagnosis is based on radiological data but above all on the results of the pathology. Only surgical resection can prevent recurrences and in some cases, liver transplantation is indicated. We report the case of a 16-monthold girl who was referred to as for surgical assessment of cystic mass in the right liver, with a respiratory recurrent symptomology. Imagery (CT scan MRI) has showed a large hepatic mass which compresses the hepatic pedicle and the vena cava. We performed a right hepatectomy after clamping the hepatic pedicle and the inferior vena cava. The postoperative follow-up were simple and disappearance of the preoperative symptoms.
