It usually involves the most distal part of the extremities. Despite being a benign tumour, it has a high risk of local recurrence. We report our experience treating four children with calcifying aponeurotic fibroma who underwent surgical excision of the tumour. Two of them developed a local recurrence: one required a surgical revision, whereas the other currently continues to be under observation. The incidence found over a 5-year period (2010–2015) may lead us to consider that this condition is not as rare as reported and may often be misdiagnosed. aPediatric and Orthopaedic Department bDepartment of Pathology, Hospital Universitari Son Espases, Palma de Mallorca, Spain Correspondence to Laura Corominas, PhD, MD, Pediatric and Orthopaedic Department, Hospital Universitari Son Espases, Crta Valldemosa 79, 07010 Palma de Mallorca, Spain Tel: +003462549127; fax: +0034871909712; e-mail: email@example.com Copyright © 2017 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc.
