[Chondroid hamartoma of the thoracic wall: apropos of a case treated by extensive surgical exeresis].

Abstract

The Authors describe a case of chest wall hamartoma, very rare in infants and usually present at birth. This lesion, histologically, is benign. Surgical ablation is mandatory and curative, but the ablation of the tumor and the reconstruction of the large residual parietal defect are sometimes very difficult. In this case the surgical treatment was successful and the reconstruction of the thoracic cage was obtained with a particular surgical technique.
