Myofibroma are benign mesenchymal tumors, commonly found in the dermis and subcutaneous tissues of the head and neck. Myofibromatosis is generally considered to be a benign process, The prognosis is good for patients with a solitary myofibroma or multicentric myofibromatosis without visceral involvement because these lesions often regress spontaneously. Cases of isolated lesions, especially in infancy, expected management is adequate because these lesions typically involute during the first 2 years of life. Chemotherapy is an option for reducing the size of the lesion and alleviating associated symptoms. Recurrence rate for solitary myofibroma is low.
