Abstract

Fibrolipomatous hamartoma is a rare benign congenital overgrowth of fibroadipose tissue in the nerve sheath. While usually affecting the median nerve, the digits of the hands and feet are sometimes affected and may result in macrodactyly, which is referred to as macrodystrophia lipomatosa. We present a rare case of fibrolipomatous hamartoma in a 6-week-old female's foot with macrodactyly and syndactyly and discuss its presentation and radiologic features.
