Ten cases of malignant epithelial liver tumours in children, observed during a 12-year period (1962 to 1974), are described. They represent one of the largest groups of this neoplasm reported in the German-language medical literature. All histological types of malignant epithelial tumours were found among the ten cases. The prognosis of these tumours in children is poor, but it can be improved by modern therapeutic methods. Once the diagnosis has been established histologically (which may be difficult), radical surgery is essential, but to be successful early diagnosis is needed. Judged by optimal results of treatment this personal series constitutes a negative selection.
