Abstract

                       Mesenchymal hamartoma of the chest wall in infancy is a rare condition. The tumor usually presents as a large thoracic mass with surrounding destruction, which can confuse as a malignant bone tumor. Herein, we report two cases that had been treated by surgical resection to demonstrate the clinical, radiological and pathological descriptions.
