Infantile myofibroma is the most common benign, mesenchymal tumor found in this age group but as compared to the vast variety of benign tumors found in infants this has been rarely identified. Clinically a solitary lesion of infantile myofibroma can present with a wide variety of symptoms depending on the site of the lesion. However, infantile myofibromas can also be asymptomatic. Rarely, a lesion affecting the respiratory center can be fatal. We present the largest solitary infantile myofibroma found in the head and neck region in this case report. A comparison with other reported cases of head and neck infantile myofibroma is also mentioned in this report.
