Infantile digital fibromatosis: case based review and first reported dermoscopic picture
Case-Based review, 97 - 100Tag this article
Infantile Digital Fibromatosis (IDF) is a relatively not so rare benign tumor of soft tissue origin that occurs mostly in infancy. In this study we present the case of an 11-month-old male infant diagnosed with a solitary IDF of the 4th finger of right hand. The clinical, dermoscopic, surgical, ultrasound and histopathologic features of the disease are presented; the differential diagnoses, therapeutic procedures and prognosis all are described through a short literature review. In this case report we present for the first time the dermoscopic features of IDF followed by ultrasound correlation. An excisional biopsy for diagnostic and therapeutic reasons was performed which resulted in an improvement of the functionality of the finger.
KEY WORDS: infantile digital fibromatosis; benign tumor infancy; Reye’s tumor.
