Abstract Although benign, hepatic haemangioendotheliomas (HHE) are rare vascular tumours of the infant which have a high mortality rate secondary to high output congestive heart failure. The management of these tumours is still controversial and none of the different medical or surgical options has been unanimously accepted. We report the case of a neonate with congestive heart failure (CHF) due to a localized HHE, treated successfully by selective ligation of the left hepatic artery branch irrigating the tumour, under perioperative ultrasound Doppler control. A review of the literature showed 35 cases of HHE treated by hepatic artery ligation (HAL) with a survival rate of 80 %.
