Congenital leiomyosarcoma of the scalp occurred in an 8-week-old boy. The clinical and microscopic findings conform to the criteria described by Stout and Hill as requirements for the diagnosis. The lesion measured 4×6 cm, showed minimal anaplasia, and numbered one mitosis per every four high-power fields. This patient was alive and well five years following surgical incision.
