  Infantile myofibromatosis (ILM) described by Enzinger in 1981 is the most common childhood fibromatosis. It consists of a benign proliferation of fibroblasts and myofibroblasts. There are three forms. Solitary MFI, the most common type, characterized by isolated skin, bone or soft tissue injury; multiple MFI represented by several locations and generalized MFI with visceral involvement. The morphological characters are identical whatever the location. The histological diagnosis is based on the identification of a double component, myofibroblast fasciculate at the periphery and hemangiopericytomas at the centre, which expresses smooth muscle actin. There is usually no atypia or mitosis, but there can be observed images of intravascular extensions in the centre. In the solitary form, the prognosis of MFI is good but it is often fatal in cases of visceral involvement. The reported case concerns a 4-year-old child who has had a left inguinal nodule since the age of 1, whose histological study after surgical excision has led to the diagnosis of myofibroma.
