Infantile Fibrosarcoma- An Unusual Presentation
Journal of Advances in Medicine and Medical Research,
Soft tissue tumours account for ~ 25% of all congenital tumours, among which infantile fibrosarcoma is one of the most common nonrhabdomyosarcoma. Infantile fibrosarcoma is a soft-tissue sarcoma occuring under 1 year of age. Forty percent of infantile fibrosarcomas are observed in infants under 3 months of life, which include congenital fibrosarcoma that is discovered antenatally. The prognosis of this tumour is relatively good compared to adult forms. Here we report an unusual case of congenital fibrosarcoma along the paravertebral region of the new born, which was successfully resected. The infant is now 6 months old with no impaired motor development.
