Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Soft tissue chondromas are rare benign tumors unrelated to bone that arise primarily in the distal extremities, especially in the fingers of middle-aged adults. We report an extremely rare case of congenital soft tissue chondroma, arising in the left great toe of a new-born infant. The present case is, to our knowledge, the first to be described in the dermatologic literature and the second reported case of congenital soft tissue chondroma.
