On the basis of personal experience of echographic finding of liver mass in the early years of life, the origin is recalled and symptomatology with ultrasounds outlined: 1) they may be occasional findings without corresponding clinical signs (cystic dysplasic forms); 2) they may be metastases of known tumours (neuroblastoma); 3) they may be primary neoplasias (haemangiomas); 4) they may be signs of a state of immunodeficiency (abscess foci). It is stated that the data supplied by echography are often aspecific or permit diagnosis only if integrated with elements provided by other techniques and/or by clinical and biohumoral data.
