Abstract
Telangiectatic focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) denotes atypical lesions considered as variants of FNH. FNH of the liver is characterized by stellate central scars with dysplastic vessels and hyperplastic nodules. It is the second most common benign hepatic tumor following hemangioma. However, telangiectatic FNH is extremely rare in the perinatal period and only three cases were reported in the literature. We recently experienced a case of telangiectatic FNH in a newborn. This lesion was detected on the prenatal ultrasonographic examination performed at the 36th weeks of gestation, and confirmed by the right lobectomy after birth. We report this case with a brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Telangiectasia, Focal nodular hyperplasia, Liver, Newborn
