Congenital fibrosarcoma masquerading as congenital hemangioma: report of two cases.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  8523253     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The authors report on two infants who had large congenital fibrosarcomas that initially were believed to be hemangiomas. Although hemangioma and congenital fibrosarcoma can have a similar presentation, their treatment is dissimilar. The authors review the anatomic findings, hematologic differences, and radiological clues that can help to differentiate congenital fibrosarcoma from congenital hemangioma.
