Every Posterior Fossa Mass Is Not a Tumor—Rare Case Report of Isolated Intracranial Infantile Myofibromatosis
Abstract: Infantile myofibromatosis is the most common fibrous disorder of infancy and early childhood. It can present in three forms—solitary lesion, multicentric with visceral involvement and multi-centeric without visceral involvement. Intracranial involvement is rare and when it occurs, it is generally extension of extracranial lesion into the intracranial compartment. Here we present a rare case of isolated posterior fossa involvement presenting clinically as congenital facial palsy.
