Abstract

Solitary myofibromas are relatively rare neoplasms but one of the most common fibrous neoplasms occurring in infancy and childhood. Adult cases have also been reported in the literature. We describe here a case report of an eighteen-month-old child who presented with a gradually enlarging nodule in the right breast. The case is presented for an insight into contemporary knowledge about its histogenetic origin, behaviour and prognosis.
