Fibrous Hamartoma of Infancy : Treatment
Treatment: Fibrous hamartoma of infancy is a benign tumor that is cured by simple excision. Recurrences (seen in 10-15% of cases) are treated by re-excision. Rare cases with sarcomatous foci have been treated by amputation. References:1. Al-Ibraheemi A. et al.
