ABSTRACT: Fibrous hamartoma of infancy is an uncommon soft tissue tumor arising from the subcutaneous tissue. The axilla is the commonest site of occurrence and chest wall is rarely involved. Although histological features are well known but the relative abundance of one kind of tissue may cause diagnostic error which is alleviated by adequate tissue sampling. Local excision is curative and is the treatment of choice. A case of large sized fibrous hamartoma of infancy involving the chest wall in a neonate is presented along with review of the literature.
