ABSTRACT: Retroperitoneal xanthogranuloma is an extremely rare tumor in children. So far only four such cases have been reported in the literature. The etiology of this tumor is not clearly understood. We herein describe a case of retroperitoneal xanthogranuloma in an eight-month-old child, which happens to be the youngest case ever reported, with review of the literature.
