Congenital Infantile Myofibromatosis: A Case Report and Review of Literature

MSC Wong, EYW Kwan


Abstract

Congenital infantile myofibromatosis is a rare disorder with multiple fibromatous tumours in skin, bone, muscle, viscera and subcutaneous tissue presenting in early infancy. Multiple lytic bone lesions and vertebra involvement are also common, mimicking the clinical picture of metastatic tumours. However, it is a disease with variable prognosis depending on the type and extent of involvement. Spontaneous resolution occurs in most of the cases without visceral involvement. We report good outcome in a case of multicentric type of infantile myofibromatosis with no visceral involvement. Invasive investigations and aggressive intervention should be avoided in these cases.
