Resumen

CHAPMAN TORRES, Vladimir et al. Aggressive Fibromatosis in Pediatric Age. ccm [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.2, pp.246-258. ISSN 1560-4381.

Introduction: aggressive fibromatosis is an uncommon, benign and recurrent disease. Objective: to characterize fibromatosis in patients attended al Provincial Pediatric Hospital of Holguín. Method: a retrospective cross-sectional study on aggressive fibromatosis in children younger than 19 years old was done during 2002 to 2012. Results: fibromatosis prevalence was 2.1 per 100 000 inhabitants. Females prevailed over males. The tumor was mainly localized in the gluteal region followed by the neck and the abdominal wall. The etiology was unknown in 75 % of cases. Fine needle aspiration biopsy was not useful for diagnosis. The initial treatment was 100 % surgical but incomplete; nevertheless, spontaneous regression of recurrence was seen in 50 % of cases. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy were applied to recurrence without successful results. Conclusions: the procedure, as the first line of treatment, should be considered because of tumor spontaneous regression. Surgical resection degree of the tumor does not prevent recurrence.

Palabras clave : fibromatosis; benign; recurrence; spontaneous regression.
