Infantile digital fibromatosis: late results of two different treatment approaches

Infantile digital fibromatosis: late results of two different treatment approaches Infantile digital fibromatosis is a rare childhood benign tumor that mainly affects digits of hands and feet. Spontaneous regression has been reported, leaving the treatment options of observation or surgery a controversial topic. In this article, two cases of infantile digital fibromatosis treated with different approaches are presented. Observation alone was utilized in the first case. No spontaneous regression was observed after 2 years of follow up. In the second case, extended tumor excision and grafting was the chosen treatment. Recurrence was not observed at the 24th month postsurgery. We believe that to prevent recurrence, the tumor must be widely excised. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals
