The patient is a 3-year-old female diagnosed with PRETEXT IV hepatoblastoma (HB). Although the tumor was decreased after the neoadjuvant chemotherapy, HB still located at the porta hepatis. The patient underwent extended left lobectomy successfully after surgical simulation using three-dimensional (3D) printing liver model based on preoperative CT.
