Abstract

Malignant mixed tumors of the liver in adults are extremely rare. To our knowledge, only a few cases have been reported in the literature.Nested stromal-epithelial tumors (NSET) of the liver are characterized by non-hepatocytic, non-biliary tumors with nests of epithelial and spindle cells, an associated myofibroblastic stroma, as well as variable calcifications and ossifications.We report a case of NSET of the liver affecting a young woman and provide detailed histological and clinical follow-up data, adding an additional case of this extremely rare pathology to the literature.
