Aggressive infantile fibromatosis, one of the juvenile fibromatoses, is generally considered a benign lesion, but it does tend to recur locally because of its invasive nature. Distant metastases are considered rare. This case report documents pulmonary metastases arising 2 years after resection of the primary lesion from the thigh of an infant. This is the seventh reported case of distant metastasis from aggressive infantile fibromatosis. Computed tomography of the original lesion as well as the metastases are presented.
