- DFSP – Typically presents later in life with different histologic features.
- Fibrous hamartoma of infancy – Distinct histology demonstrates fibroblasts, mesenchymal tissue, and mature fat.
- Keloid – History of injury.
- Hypertrophic scar
- Infantile fibrosarcoma
- Nodular fasciitis
- Dermoid cyst
