Infantile myofibromatosis, mostly developing at birth or in early infancy, is a rare clinical disorder characterized by myofibroblastic lesions. We report clinical, radiological and pathological features of a three-year-old boy who was diagnosed with infantile myofibromatosis originating from the occipital region contrary to radiological findings in advanced diagnostic studies.
