Fibrous Hamartoma of Infancy at the Hand: A Case Report with Complications
Abstract: Fibrous Hamartoma of Infancy is a benign subdermal tumor most commonly presenting at the proximal appendages. Here we present a case of Fibrous Hamatoma of Infancy at the hand with discussion of its challenging excision and post-operative complications. This case highlights the delicate and challenging nature of pediatric hand surgery.
