    Lipofibromatosis is a rare, benign fibrofatty tumor of childhood. Since the tumor was first characterized in 2000, only a few additional cases have been reported. The classic presentation of lipofibromatosis is a slow-growing mass arising in a distal extremity, with boys more commonly affected...

    Ganglioneuroma arise from sympathetic ganglions and belongs to the group of neurogenic tumors including ganglioneuroblastoma and neuroblastoma. Ganglioneuroma can be considered a benign form of neuroblastic tumors, and is thought to be either a primary ganglioneuroma or follows a spontaneous or...
