    From the Department of Pathology, Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, New York.
    Infantile digital fibroma is a rare benign lesion that usually occurs during the first 2 years of life. It can be multiple, but it is usually a single lesion. If it grows large enough it can cause joint deformities or interfere with everyday activities. Read More

    Benign Nerve Sheath Myxoma in an Infant Misdiagnosed as Infantile Digital Fibromatosis.
    Pediatr Dermatol 2016 Jul 16;33(4):e252-3. Epub 2016 May 16.
    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

    Service de pathologie, groupe hospitalier Pellegrin, CHU Bordeaux, place Amélie-Raba-Léon, 33076 Bordeaux cedex, France.
    Infantile digital fibromatosis or inclusion body fibromatosis is a rare, benign fibroproliferative lesion with recurrent potential that occurs on the digits of infants. A highly characteristic morphologic finding is the presence of paranuclear inclusion within the tumoral cells. We report here a case occurring in an 8-month-old infant with 2 asynchronous lesions of the toes. Read More

    Key cytological findings in FNA from infantile digital fibromatosis.
    Acta Cytol 2011 8;55(5):481-4. Epub 2011 Oct 8.
    Department of Cytopathology, King Edward Memorial Hospital, Mumbai, India.
    Background: Infantile digital fibromatosis (IDF) or inclusion body fibromatosis is a benign proliferation of fibroblastic and myofibroblastic cells. Its most common site is the digits of young children and it is named for the intracytoplasmic inclusions that are detected in lesional cells.

    Case: A two and a half-year-old male child presented with a single flesh-colored nodule on the dorsal aspect of his right little toe since the sixth month of life. Read More

    Infantile digital fibromatosis: our experience and long-term results.
    Chir Main 2011 Feb 12;30(1):62-5. Epub 2011 Jan 12.
    Centro Regionale di Chirurgia della Mano, Ospedale San Paolo, Via Genova, Savona, Italy.
    Infantile fibromatosis is an uncommon benign proliferation of myofibroblasts in the dermal tissue on the digits and toes with a marked tendency for recurrence. Inclusion bodies in the cytoplasm of neoplastic fibroblasts are a characteristic histologic feature of this condition. The tumor may often resolve spontaneously. Read More

    Intra-lesional steroid for the management of symptomatic Infantile Digital Fibromatosis.
    J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2011 May;64(5):632-7
    Department of Plastic Surgery, Alder Hey Children's Hospital, Eaton Road, Liverpool L12 2AP, UK.
    Background: Infantile Digital Fibromatosis (IDF) is a benign, often asymptomatic nodular proliferation of fibrous tissue occurring almost exclusively on the extremities. Conventional treatment has included radical surgery but this is associated with a high level of recurrence. Whilst some authors suggest a strictly conservative approach, this is unacceptable when lesions become symptomatic from pain, contracture formation or functional deformity

    Methods: We present a retrospective analysis of 12 symptomatic lesions of which 7 were treated with a novel technique of intra-lesional steroid. Read More

    Non-malignant fibrosing tumors in the pediatric hand: a clinicopathologic case review.
    Hand (N Y) 2009 Mar 2;4(1):2-11. Epub 2008 Dec 2.
    Division of Plastic Surgery, Baylor College of Medicine, 6624 Fannin St. #2730, Houston, TX 77030, USA.
    Non-malignant fibrosing tumors in the pediatric hand or juvenile fibromatoses are clinically challenging because of their relatively infrequent occurrence and because of the variety of names associated with these diseases. We conducted a review of a personal case series of pediatric patients with these tumors and discuss here the more common histologic types and clinical characteristics of the disease spectrum in the context of the available published literature. All histologic samples were reviewed by a single pathologist. Read More

    Beta-catenin expression in pediatric fibroblastic and myofibroblastic lesions: a study of 100 cases.
    Pediatr Dev Pathol 2009 Jul-Aug;12(4):292-6
    Department of Histopathology, Royal Marsden Hospital, London, United Kingdom.
    Nuclear immunoreactivity for beta-catenin is a useful adjunct for diagnosis of adult desmoid-type fibromatoses, many of which exhibit mutations within the APC/beta-catenin (Wnt) pathway. Pediatric fibromatoses represent a heterogeneous group of lesions that are diagnostically challenging, especially on biopsy. We studied beta-catenin expression in a variety of pediatric fibroblastic and myofibroblastic lesions. Read More

    Infantile digital fibroma/fibromatosis: a clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical study of 69 tumors from 57 patients with long-term follow-up.

Tumors ranged in size from 3 to 35 (median, 10) mm. Read More

    Infantile digital fibromatosis.
    Ann Plast Surg 2008 Oct;61(4):472-6
    Department of Plastic Surgery, Children's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA.
    Infantile digital fibromas are rare benign neoplasms that occur principally in children and are usually confined to the digits. These lesions are similar in appearance to several benign and malignant lesions, and biopsy is often required to confirm the diagnosis. The tumor is composed of myofibroblasts, which contain pathognomonic intracellular inclusion bodies. Read More

    A range of histologic findings in infantile digital fibromatosis.
    Pediatr Dermatol 2008 Jan-Feb;25(1):72-5
    Department of Dermatology, The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, USA.
    Infantile digital fibromatosis is a benign proliferation of myofibroblasts with characteristic eosinophilic intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies. Clinically, patients present in the first several years of life with asymptomatic, smooth, flesh-colored nodules located on the dorsal or lateral aspect of the fingers or toes. The lesions have a tendency for spontaneous regression and recur over 60% of the time following excision. Read More

    Infantile digital fibromatosis: an unusual localization.
    J Pediatr Surg 2001 Oct;36(10):1587-9
    Department of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Ankara Numune Hospital, Ankara, Turkey.
    Infantile digital fibromatosis (recurrent digital fibromatosis) is a rare, benign fibrous growth of childhood. The authors present a case of a 16-year-old child with an infantile digital fibromatosis on the volar surface of the right little finger at the distal interphalangeal joint level. After excision of the tumor, histopathologic diagnosis was shown to be infantile digital fibromatosis. Read More

    Phyllodes tumor of the breast with actin inclusions in stromal cells: diagnosis by fine-needle aspiration cytology.
    Diagn Cytopathol 2001 Aug;25(2):115-7
    Department of Pathology, Hospital General Universitario de Alicante, Alicante, Spain.
    The occurrence of hyaline inclusions in stromal cells in fibroepithelial tumors of the breast is very uncommon. These inclusions, characteristic of infantile digital fibromatosis, are comprised of actin filaments. This report illustrates a case of a benign phyllodes tumor of the breast with inclusion bodies, identified by fine-needle aspiration. Read More

    Superficial fibromatoses are genetically distinct from deep fibromatoses.
    Mod Pathol 2001 Jul;14(7):695-701
    Department of Pathology, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland 21205-2196, USA.
    Whereas deep fibromatoses (abdominal, extra-abdominal, mesenteric) display locally aggressive behavior, superficial fibromatoses typically remain small and less likely to recur despite essentially identical morphology. Somatic beta-catenin or APC gene mutations have been reported in < or =74% of sporadic deep fibromatoses and in virtually 100% of Gardner syndrome-associated fibromatoses, whereas genetic events in superficial fibromatoses remain less well characterized. We performed immunohistochemical staining for beta-catenin on 29 superficial fibromatoses (22 palmar, 5 plantar, 1 penile, and 1 infantile digital fibromatosis) and 5 deep fibromatoses. Read More

    Imaging of musculoskeletal fibromatosis.
    Radiographics 2001 May-Jun;21(3):585-600
    Department of Radiology, University Hospitals of Cleveland, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, 10900 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH 44106, USA.
    The musculoskeletal fibromatoses comprise a wide range of lesions with a common histopathologic appearance. They can be divided into two major groups: superficial and deep. The superficial fibromatoses are typically small, slow-growing lesions and include palmar fibromatosis, plantar fibromatosis, juvenile aponeurotic fibroma, and infantile digital fibroma. Read More

    Infantile myofibromatosis: case report of a solitary hand lesion with emphasis on differential diagnosis and management.
    Ann Plast Surg 2001 Jan;46(1):62-7
    Division of Plastic Surgery, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, USA.
    Infantile myofibromatosis, both solitary and multicentric types, is discussed with emphasis on the importance of diagnosing this condition correctly. Its distinctive clinical and histological characteristics are described, as are the hazards of overhasty and overly ambitious surgical intervention. Other similarly presenting fibromatous diseases of infancy and childhood are discussed, including aplasia cutis, infantile fibrosarcoma, recurring infantile digital fibromatosis, and juvenile aponeurotic fibromatosis.

    J Pediatr Surg 1999 Jul;34(7):1112-4
    British Columbia Children's Hospital, Vancouver, Canada.
    Background/purpose: Fibromatoses represent a spectrum of nonneoplastic spindle cell tumors frequently identified in childhood. Although they may be locally aggressive, they do not metastasize. The authors have reviewed their experience of these lesions in an attempt to identify clinical and pathological features suggestive of recurrence. Read More

    A case of infantile digital fibromatosis with spontaneous regression.
    J Dermatol 1998 Aug;25(8):523-6
    Department of Dermatology, Yamagata University School of Medicine, Japan.
    We reported a fourteen-month-old boy with infantile digital fibromatosis. At the age of seven months, a nodule appeared on the back of the left third toe, and developed into a slight red tumor divided into five hemispherical nodules. Histopathologically, spindle-shaped tumor cells with an eosinophilic inclusion body in the cytoplasm were seen in the dermis. Read More

    [Myofibroblastic tumors. Brief review of clinical aspects, diagnosis and differential diagnosis].
    Pathologe 1998 May;19(3):176-86
    Institut für Pathologie der Friedrich-Schiller-Universität, Jena.
    This review summarizes myofibroblastic tumours that have been characterized in the last years. These lesions include: fibromatoses in adults and infants (infantile digital fibromatosis and infantile myofibromatosis); myofibroma of adults, an almost exclusively solitary lesion in the skin which is characterized morphologically as a biphasic lesion composed of spindle-shaped eosinophilic tumour cells and more primitive mesenchymal tumour cells associated with a haemangiopericytoma-like vasculature; dermatomyofibroma (plaque-like dermal fibromatosis), a band-like myofibroblastic proliferation in young female patients, which is mainly located in the periaxillar region and in which distinction from more aggressive, plaque-like variant of dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans is mandatory; myofibroblastoma of the breast, a well-circumscribed lesion composed of spindle shaped, desmin-positive tumour cells, which is seen mainly in elderly male patients and has to be distinguished from other spindle cell lesions of the breast; angiomyofibroblastoma, a well-circumscribed myofibroblastic neoplasm of the vulva and vagina composed of avoid to round myoid tumour cells with scattered multinucleated cells, which forms a continuous morphological spectrum with the clinically more aggressive angiomyxoma in this location; intranodal myofibroblastoma, a distinctive proliferation of myofibroblastic cells associated with so-called amianthoid fibres, which is seen most commonly in inguinal lymph nodes; myofibroblastoma/myofibroblastic tumour of soft tissues, a variably well-circumscribed myofibroblastic lesion which lacks atypia and is composed of actin and/or desmin positive tumour cells, and poorly delineated sarcomas with myofibroblastic differentiation (myofibrosarcoma).
