HERRERA-TORO, Natalia  and  GOMEZ-GIL, Jean Paul. Deep benign fibrous peritoneal histiocytoma in a 14 month-old child. Case report. Iatreia [online]. 2015, vol.28, n.4, pp.443-448. ISSN 0121-0793.

Benign fibrous histiocytoma is very rare in children, and more frequent in adults. It is commonly found in the skin, especially in the limbs. Usually it is small. According to the World Health Organization, less than 1 % of benign fibrous histiocytomas are found in deep tissues. Peritoneal location of this kind of tumor has not been previously reported in children. Due to its great interest, we report the case of a 14 month-old male with a peritoneal benign fibrous histiocytoma. No resection of the lesion was feasible.

Keywords : Ascites; Dermatofibroma; Histiocytoma Benign Fibrous; Peritoneum.
