A 6-month-old female infant from St Vincent presented with a soft-tissue mass encompassing the left forearm (Figs 1–4). This was initially misdiagnosed as a hemangioma. Biopsy showed infantile fibrosarcoma, and the patient required a left transhumeral amputation due to the extensive involvement of the forearm.
