Abstract

Fibrous hamartomas of infancy and childhood are rare benign tumors. The clinical and morphological features of these lesions can be different according to the age at onset. Although the most common localizations are the shoulders, axillas, and upper arms, these lesions may develop in unusual sites such as the scrotum. The authors report a 13-month-old child with a fibrous hamartoma in the scrotum, which was excised. At 1-year follow-up there was no sign of local recurrence or distant disease. The clinical and histological features of the disease are described in order to facilitate correct diagnosis and avoid inadequate therapy.
