Medical Care

Because of the benign nature of infantile digital fibromatosis, frequent recurrence after surgery, and tendency toward spontaneous resolution, [7, 8, 9] observation is suggested. [10]


Surgical Care

Of infantile digital fibromatosis lesions, 60-90% are reported to recur with local excision, and surgery is recommended only if there is functional impairment. [11] Mohs micrographic surgery using smooth muscle actin or trichrome stains has been successful in a few cases that required surgery. [12]  Cryotherapy has also been used successfully. [13]
