Abstract

Infantile digital fibromatosis (IDF) is a form of fibromatosis usually restricted to childhood. Typically occuring on fingers and toes of children and rarely in the oral cavity [Canioni et al. Pathol. Res. Pract. 187 (1991) 886] and in adults [Viale et al. Histopathology 12 (1998) 415]. It was first described by Reye [Arch. Pathol. Lab. Med. 80 (1965) 228]. IDF (Reyes tumour) is a rarely encountered, non malignant tumour of children. The lesions may be multiple and are either present at birth or appear during the first 2 years of life and are prone for recurrence after removal. Recognition is important as they often regress spontaneously if left alone [Ishi et al. Br. J. Dermatol. 121 (1989) 129]. We report here a care of IDF on right second toe, which was congenital in origin and was clinically similar to keloid.
