Abstract

Infantile myofibromatosis is the most common fibrous disorder of infancy and early childhood. Intracranial involvement is rare, with the majority of lesions being localized to the skull or dura with variable intracranial extension. We present the case of a 19-month-old girl with infantile myofibromatosis and an incidentally discovered, enlarging, calcified, posterior fossa mass. The patient underwent suboccipital craniotomy and resection of the lesion. This is the first report of the surgical removal of an intraparenchymal infantile myofibroma.
