Abstract
An one-day-old female patient was admitted due to marked abdominal distension, cyanosis, right upper quadrant mass, and respiratory failure since birth. We applied ventilator and supportive care immediatly. However, 4 days later, she was dead due to respiratory failure and hemorragic complication. The radiographic finding showed a huge intra-abdominal mass anterior to the intestine. Autopsy findings showed a huge single cystic tumor in the right lobe of the liver. The cysts were filled with sanguinous fluid. There wasn' t any signs of necrosis or calcification. Microscopically, the tumor was well demarcated from the adjacent hepatic parenchyma. It consists of connective tissue with dilated lymphatics, vessels, and bile ducts.
