Infantile fibrosarcoma (IFS) is a malignant tumor, commonly presenting in long bones and seldom encountered after 2 years of age. It is extremely rare in the faciomaxillary region. The condition is often mistaken for teratomas, and histopathology/immunohistochemistry is confirmatory. Treatment involves surgical resection as primary modality. Prognosis is much better compared to the adult variant with even scope for spontaneous regression following "conservative" resection. We present a case of IFS of the nasomaxillary complex in a 3-month-old female child. We managed our case with surgical resection, and the patient has remained disease free for over 2 years.
