The hepatic affection induced by chemotherapy appears in children cancer focal hepatic lesions cases of prolonged cancer focal hepatic lesions, chronic diseases, or other associated conditions. Hepatotoxicity clinically develops through hepatic disorder, cholestatic or mixed hepato-cholestatic manifestations and systematic affection. There are no specific hystological or biochemical characteristics for diagnostic of hepatotoxicity.
The international criteria for asessing the hepatotoxicity includes the bilirubin, the transaminasis, GGT, FA, albumin and the flow on the vein. It has been noticed that these parameters are not enough for the right assesssment of the chemotherapics hepatotoxicity. Thus it is required the abdominal ultrasonography and computerised tomography for the identification of billiary tract, vascularisation, associated conditions and the degree of fibrosis; also, the hepatic biopsy may be necessary.
Acustic radiation force imaging ARFI is an elastographic method which allows valid, accurate and flexible evaluation of liver stiffness, a quantification with a strong correlation with the fibrosis stage, not influenced by steatosis.
In conclusion, the hepatic toxicity showed by alterated hepatic biochemical tests and cancer focal hepatic lesions symptomes of hepatopathy needs a proper appreciation of the hepatic modifications, which can be obtained through hepatic biopsy or by assessing the hepatic elasticity through elastography.

Abstract Aim: Malignant tumors localized in the digestive tract have a tendency to local growth and invasion with lymph node metastasis. Distant metastases through blood with prevalent liver location are detected late in disease progression, in an advanced stage, when therapeutic possibilities are often limited to palliative therapy.
