Abstract:  Benign fibrous histiocytoma is a common soft tissue tumor that usually occurs in adults and is relatively rare in childhood. This report describes a 7-month-old Caucasian boy with an enlarging firm congenital nodule on his occipital scalp. Histologic analysis revealed a benign fibrous histiocytoma with osteoclast-like giant cells. Benign fibrous histiocytoma with osteoclast-like giant cells is a rare histologic variant.
