Undifferentiated embryonal sarcoma (UES) of the liver is an uncommon primitive mesenchymal tumor occurring mainly in the pediatric population with a predominant age range of 6-10 yrs. Although rare, UES is the 3rd-most common cause of primary hepatic neoplasms in children after hepatoblastoma and hepatocellular carcinoma. The pathogenesis behind UES is not fully understood. However, it is hypothesized that UES is the malignant counterpart to mesenchymal hamartoma (MH). Case 1: A 4-year-old girl with a prior history of congenital heart defects presented with lethargy, decreased appetite and intermittent fevers. On examination, a nontender mass was noted in the right upper quadrant. Case 2: A 7-year-old boy with no medical history presented with abdominal mass, discomfort, nausea, lethargy and early satiety.
