Abstract: A 9-month-old female infant presented with asymptomatic, skin-colored nodules over the medial plantar aspects of both heels, which were noted immediately after birth and increased in size with the growth of the infant. The diagnosis was precalcaneal congenital fibrolipomatous hamartoma. This condition is rarely reported; however, as biopsy is sometimes not performed, it may be underrepresented. We present a further histopathologically proved instance of this entity, with discussion of the differential diagnosis.
