Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Aggressive fibromatosis (AF) is characterized by a nonmetastatic fibroblastic proliferative lesion that is histologically benign with infiltrative growth and frequent recurrence. To our knowledge, infantile AF is rarely reported. There are no clear guidelines regarding the management and treatment strategies for intracranial infantile AF because of its rarity. In China, there are few reports in the clinical literature concerning intracranial infantile AF. We describe 2 cases of intracranial infantile AF and review the relevant literature to better understand the pathological features, differential diagnosis and treatment of this condition.
