Recurrent infantile digital fibromatosis with HPV infection: a case report.

AME Case Rep 2021 25;5:20. Epub 2021 Apr 25.

Department of Dermatology, Affiliated Hospital of Jiangsu University, Zhenjiang, China.

Infantile digital fibromatosis is a rare, benign fibrous tumor among infants usually limited to fingers and toes. Most cases present themselves with round eosinophilic inclusion bodies of different sizes, similar to erythrocyte in the parakarytoplasm. Although infantile digital fibromatosis had been observed with a tendency of spontaneous regression after a rapid phase of growth in some reports, the recurrence rate of early surgical intervention remains high.

Non-malignant fibroblastic/myofibroblastic tumors in pediatric age group: Clues and pitfalls to the cytological diagnosis.

Cytopathology 2020 03 7;31(2):115-121. Epub 2020 Feb 7.

Department of Paediatric Surgery, Chacha Nehru Bal Chikitsalaya, New Delhi, India.

Introduction: Fibroblastic/myofibroblastic tumors constitute 12% of all pediatric soft tissue tumors with the majority of them belonging to the benign and intermediate prognostic categories. They are often misdiagnosed owing to their variable clinical presentation and unusual microscopic features. The diagnosis, specially cytological diagnosis of benign and intermediate categories is difficult due to paucity of cellular component and increased amount of extracellular matrix as compared to malignant ones.

Clinical features and management of superficial fibromatoses.

J Dtsch Dermatol Ges 2019 Apr 13;17(4):393-397. Epub 2019 Mar 13.

Department of Dermatology and Allergy Biederstein, Technical University of Munich, Munich, Germany.

Fibromatoses are a group of benign connective tissue tumors characterized by the infiltrative, aggressive proliferation of well-differentiated fibroblasts, leading to frequent local recurrence. Within this heterogeneous disease group, superficial fibromatoses show slower growth and more benign infiltration of surrounding tissues than deep fibromatoses. Superficial fibromatoses relevant to dermatology include palmar, plantar, and penile fibromatosis, knuckle pads, pachydermodactyly and infantile digital fibromatosis. Read More

Terminal osseous dysplasia presenting with intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies in digital fibromas.

Pediatr Dermatol 2018 Nov 31;35(6):e353-e356. Epub 2018 Aug 31.

Department of Dermatology, Medical Center, University of Freiburg, Freiburg, Germany.

Terminal osseous dysplasia is a rare, X-linked syndrome, presumptively embryonic lethal in males, which has recently been described with highly characteristic skin findings. The presence of intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies in fibroblasts has been considered an exclusive finding of infantile digital fibromatosis. This is the first report documenting digital fibromas with intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies in a classic case of terminal osseous dysplasia. Read More

* Department of Plastic Surgery, Carmel Lady Davis Medical Center, Israel.

Infantile Digital Fibromatosis (IDF) is a rare benign lesion that can affect the fingers, often appearing at birth or early on in life. Treatment is controversial due to a high recurrence rate following surgical excision, and the tendency of the lesions to regress or resolve completely after the age of one year. Functional loss has rarely been described. Read More

Department of Dermatology, Acıbadem Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Herein we present the case of a 16-month boy, clinically diagnosed with infantile digital fibromatosis, but 9 months after continued growth, the mass was excised and the histopathologic diagnosis was that of a benign nerve sheath myxoma. We present this case to emphasize that nerve sheath myxomas (also known as myxoid neurothekeoma) should be included in the differential diagnosis of dermal nodules in infants. Read More

An unknown mass: the differential diagnosis of digit tumors.

Int J Dermatol 2015 Nov 30;54(11):1214-25. Epub 2015 Jul 30.

Veterans Affairs Hospital & SUNY Downstate, Brooklyn, NY, USA.

There is little discussion of tumors arising in the digits in the dermatology literature. The patient with an undifferentiated mass of the finger is frequently encountered in the clinic, and variances in presentation of common and uncommon entities pose a challenge that may prompt further investigation for proper diagnosis and treatment. In this review, the authors illustrate the approach and work-up of an unknown digit mass of a 45-year-old female patient. Read More

Infantile digital fibromatosis (IDF) is a rare tumour of infancy with a typical clinical presentation and characteristic histopathological findings. Despite an alarming appearance, IDF does not cause deep infiltration or metastasis. The traditional approach of surgical resection was recently challenged by increasing evidence of self regression in months or years. Read More
