Abstract: Congenital multiple clustered dermatofibroma (MCDF) is a rare, idiopathic, benign tumor presenting at birth as an asymptomatic hyperpigmented patch that is stable until puberty, at which time it enlarges and develops papules. Ultimately, MCDF appears to follow a stable, benign course. We present a case of a 12-year-old girl with congenital MCDF. To our knowledge, this is only the third reported case of congenital presentation of MCDF and the only case featuring atrophoderma-like depression.
