In brief: Surgery, chemoRx

For cure, surgical resection is essential.
This can occasionally can be performed up front, but frequently requires initial chemotherapy to shrink tumor. Unresectable tumors are potential candidates for removal of the entire liver with transplant ion.

In brief: Surgery+/- chemo

Treatment is dependent on staging.
Most will require a combination of chemotherapy and surgery to completely remove the tumor. Cisplatin, 5-fluorouracil, vincristine, +/ doxorubicin are the common chemotherapy agents employed to treat hepatoblastoma.
