Abstract: We saw two newborn infants with striated muscle hamartoma. One patient had numerous associated congenital anomalies. The clinical appearance of both lesions was that of a soft fibroma. Histologically, striated muscle fibers and nerve bundles were seen in the central core and also at the periphery of the lesion, below the epidermis. A marked number of sebaceous glands, vellus hair follicles, and eccrine glands were also present. We propose the term striated muscle hamartoma, which points out the most remarkable feature of these lesions.
