Common benign pediatric cutaneous tumors: timing and treatment

Clin Plast Surg. 1990 Jan;17(1):49-64.


This article has been a brief overview of some of the common cutaneous pediatric tumors. There are many that have been omitted, but these are relatively uncommon and, for them, consultation with your dermatologist and/or professional peers is always a good investment. This pays great dividends and increases the quality of health care, particularly in the uncommon lesions that are foreign to you but may have been seen on several occasions by one of your peers.
