Congenital-infantile fibrosarcoma is an unusual childhood tumor that occurs mainly in children under 5 years of age. More than 300 cases have been reported in the literature so far, very few of them at birth. A distinction must be made between it and its adult counterpart because of differences in their clinical behaviour. We report here a case of congenital fibrosarcoma in a 4-day-old female infant.
