Nested stromal-epithelial tumor (NSET) is a very rare nonhepatocytic and nonbiliary primary tumor of the liver. An 8-year-old boy was incidentally detected with hepatic lesions, involving both lobes of the liver for which he later underwent orthotopic liver transplant. The hepatic lesions were confirmed to be NSET following histopathological examination of explant liver specimen. He later developed recurrence with multiple metastatic lesions, including multi-station nodal and right talar bone involvement. We here present the case highlighting the importance of 18F-fludeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography in the management of this rare tumor, in particular for monitoring disease progression and/or recurrence.
