A subcutaneous nodule composed of heterotopic glial tissue is reported. The lesion was present in the subcutaneous tissue of the chest wall in a 2-year-old female. Histologically it was composed of loosely textured fibrillary neuroglial tissue in a densely hyalinized collagenous stroma. Immunohistochemical staining for glial fibrillary acidic protein was positive. The possible origin of this soft tissue glial heterotopia is discussed and the subject of heterotopic glial tissue is reviewed.
