Congenital Multiple Fibromatosis (Infantile Myofibromatosis)

Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 1988;114(2):207-209. doi:10.1001/archotol.1988.01860140105033

• A female newborn had a rare case of congenital multiple fibromatosis, consisting of multiple fibrous lesions that histologically resemble myofibromas. Bony and soft-tissue lesions usually undergo spontaneous resolution, but excision may be required if vital structures are compromised as was the case in this patient. When the lesions involve the viscera in a generalized form of the disease, the result is often fatal.
