Congenital Generalized Fibromatosis: An African Case With Gingival Hypertrophy and Other Unusual Features

Congenital Generalized Fibromatosis: An African Case With Gingival Hypertrophy and Other Unusual... Abstract • What is believed to be the first reported case of congenital generalized fibromatosis in an African infant is described. Features in our patient, which were not noted in previous reports of the disease, include gingival hypertrophy, ankylosis of joints, skeletal hyperostosis, and lymphatic dilation of the ileal villi.

Abstract

Abstract • What is believed to be the first reported case of congenital generalized fibromatosis in an African infant is described.
