Abstract

Infantile myofibromatosis is a rare, benign proliferative myofibroblastic tumor which occurs mostly in infants and young children. It presents as either solitary or multiple nodules arising from soft tissues, bones, or visceral organs. Accurate diagnosis and differentiation from more aggressive tumors are important because of the variations in the benign clinical course, conservative treatment, and possible spontaneous regression of infantile myofibromatosis. We present a case of multiple infantile myofibromatosis of soft tissues without involvement of visceral organs diagnosed
at the neonatal age.
