Hepatoblastoma (HB) in children with both lung and right atrial metastases is an unusual situation. The therapy for these cases is challenging and the prognosis is not good. We present three children with HB showing both lung and right atrial metastases and who underwent surgery and received preoperative/postoperative adjuvant-combined chemotherapy to achieve complete remission. Therefore, HB with lung and right atrial metastases could have a good prognosis through active and multidisciplinary treatment.
