Abstract

In this article we report a case of a huge, fast growing, spindle cell myxoid tumor on the back of an infant's hand with a previously undescribed FGFR1-CAPRIN1 fusion. We discussed here difficulties in clinical decision making in rare cases of life quality threatening soft tissue tumors in infants.
