Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We present two unique cases of fibrous hamartoma of infancy defined by giant-sized and/or multicentric cutaneous and subcuticular lesions-features not, to our knowledge, reported to coexist. We review the nature of such tumors and examine the clinical implications of tumor size and multicentricity on risk for recurrence and likelihood of visceral involvement.
