Juvenile hyaline fibromatosis: a case report.


Juvenile hyaline fibromatosis is a rare, hereditary disease with distinct clinical and histopathological features. Clinically, it presents with gingival hypertrophy, pappulonodular skin lesions and joint contractures. Bone involvement is usually an uncommon finding. We report a case of a 2-year-old patient, daughter of consanguineous parents, who presented since the age of 2 months with impairment of mental development, multiple joint contractures, motion limitation and nodules on the scalp. The calvarian lesions were surgically removed, and histopathological examination concluded to juvenile hyaline fibromatosis.
