Fibrous hamartoma of infancy (FHI) is a rare benign subcutaneous tumor which is commonly seen in the first year of life. Patients usually present with a single, painless, rapidly growing mass located mostly on the upper extremities. It can be difficult to distinguish this lesion from the malignant soft tissue sarcomas because of the rapid growth and radiological characteristics. Here we report a 5-month-old boy with a large gluteal mass and cutaneous findings which was initially thought to be an infiltrative malignant tumor and finally diagnosed as FHI.
