Abstract

Fibrous hamartoma of infancy is a rare benign soft tissue tumor that usually occurs within the first 2 years of life. We report 3 cases of fibrous hamartoma of infancy seen over a 10-year period. Treatment is curative by local excision with a low local recurrence rate. Fibrous hamartoma of infancy should be considered in the differential diagnosis of soft tissue masses in children because it is always benign and subject to nonaggressive treatment.
