Generalized Atrophic Dells in a Newborn

Author and Disclosure Information

Infantile myofibromatosis (IM) is a nonmetastasizing locally invasive neoplasm.

Lesions typically present during infancy and range in size from a few millimeters to several centimeters. We present an unusual case of a patient with an atrophic variant of IM.
