Infantile myofibromatosis causing biliary and pancreatic obstruction: a case report.

Author information

Department of Pediatrics, Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne, Australia.


A case of obstructive jaundice caused by a solitary myofibroma in an 18-week-old infant is presented. Preoperative investigations demonstrated total biliary and partial pancreatic obstruction, although no obstructing lesion was identified radiologically. At operation a 3-cm solitary myofibroma was found in the head of the pancreas. Because of the morbidity associated with resection at this site, a bypass procedure was performed in the hope that the lesion will regress.
