Abstract

We present a case of an 8-year-old-boy with recurrent infantile digital fibromatosis (IDF) who presented with new fibrotic lesions. IDF is a benign fibrous growth of  childhood. Typically affecting the fingers and toes of children, the condition is nonmalignant and has a high recurrent potential following surgical excision. Although B200 cases of IDF have been described to date, a generalized consensus does not seem to exist on an approach to treatment. The current treatment modalities for IDF are reviewed.
