Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva presenting as fibrous scalp nodules1

Author and Disclosure Information

Abstract

An infant with subcutaneous nodules was diagnosed as having congenital generalized fibromatosis based on the histopathological examination. During the child’s first year of life, additional symptoms developed which were compatible with a diagnosis of fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva; this was later confirmed radiologically.
