Abstract

The term infantile digital fibromatosis describes a benign tumor of the group of fibromatoses. The prevalence rate is approximately 2.5% of all fibromatoses. The etiopathogenesis of infantile digital fibromatosis is unknown. These tumors can appear already at birth, but usually manifest during the first 3 years of life as solid, pink or skin-colored asymptomatic nodules on one or several fingers or toes. Because of the postoperative recurrence rate of 50-75% and the possibility of spontaneous regression, excision is not recommended according to currently available evidence.
