. It is characterized histologically by nested spindle and epithelioid cells and sometimes marked desmoplasia. The nests of epithelioid cells resemble immature, keratin 8- and epithelial membrane antigenpositive hepatoid cells with eosinophilic cytoplasm. These nests are surrounded by spindle cells that stain for vimentin and α-smooth muscle actin. Calcifications and bone formation may occur. A possible relationship to mixed blastomatous tumours of the paediatric liver is uncertain, but, like hepatoblastomas, the epithelioid cells in nested tumours have nuclear positivity for β-catenin, suggesting a pathogenic role for mutations in the β-catenin gene
