PMID:  8803309     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A one-year-old girl with a giant cell fibroblastoma (GCF) of the skin in the left arm is described. The tumor presented as a small, asymptomatic, subcutaneous mass that enlarged relatively slowly. GCF is a rare mesenchymal tumor occurring predominantly in young children. Its unique histopathological feature can lead to a misdiagnosis as sarcoma very easily. We review briefly the clinical and pathological information of 68 documented cases in the literature and discuss the pathogenesis of this peculiar neoplasm.
