Abstract

A case of an intrathoracic accessory liver lobe in a five-year-old female is presented, representing an incidental finding during workup for a respiratory infection. MRI was used to identify what appeared to be an accessory intrathoracic liver lobe. Thoracoscopy confirmed the diagnosis, and removal was achieved through a minimally invasive surgical procedure. Based on an electronic literature search, this is the first known report of minimally invasive techniques to remove accessory liver from the chest in a pediatric patient.
