Tuberous sclerosis is a complex autosomal-dominant neurocutaneous syndrome characterized by hamartomatous malformations of fibrous and connective tissues in various organs. Although various histologic types of soft-tissue masses can occur with tuberous sclerosis, we present a unique case of fibrous hamartoma of infancy presenting as large infiltrating cutaneous and subcutaneous masses in the abdominal wall in a 4-year-old boy with tuberous sclerosis. Although the co-occurrence of tuberous sclerosis and fibrous hamartoma of infancy is very rare, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of subcutaneous soft-tissue masses found in children with tuberous sclerosis.
