  Abstract  
  Successful surgical management of Infantile Hepatic Hemangioendothelioma (IHH) in infancy is facilitated by a correct clinical diagnosis, adequate pre-operative imaging, peri-operative planning and a meticulous operative approach. We report of a case of an IHH associated with aberrant hepatic arterial anatomy and anomalous abdominal venous drainage through a double IVC. Preoperative selective abdominal visceral angiography must be considered prior to surgical resection in these lesions because of the possibility of aberrant vascular anatomy.
