Abstract

MATA, Bruna Emmanuelle Linhares Fonseca; OLIVEIRA, Juliana Santos Bayerl de  and  SOARES, Damião Ranulfo Fernandes. Infantile myofibromatosis: report of a rare disease. Radiol Bras [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.2, pp. 118-120. ISSN 0100-3984.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842012000200011.

Infantile myofibromatosis is a rare disease with various presentations. Usually, such condition manifests itself as subcutaneous nodules, either in association or not with visceral nodules. The diagnosis should be achieved by means of physical examination and imaging studies, with emphasis on the lesions pattern to allow the staging and classification of the disease. The treatment is still controversial.
