Abstract

Dermatomyofibroma is a rare, benign mesenchymal proliferation not commonly reported in children. Two patients with biopsy-proven dermatomyofibroma were identified (one female, one male) at our institution, both with rather atypical clinical presentations. The clinical and histopathologic findings and a review of the literature are presented here. Features of dermatomyofibroma should be recognized and differentiated from those of similar-appearing entities since the prognosis of this benign tumor is favorable after complete excision.
