A 9-month-old male infant underwent a left hepatic lobectomy for hepatoblastoma. Gastric volvulus developed postoperatively and was corrected at a second laparotomy. Although left hepatic lobectomy is not an uncommon surgical procedure, this may be the first documented case of gastric volvulus complicating such a procedure.
