Case Study
A case report on nodular fasciitis (NF) of the maxillofacial region in a 1½-year-old child is presented. The tentative diagnosis of posttraumatic hematoma, ineffective treatment with oral antibiotics, and excision of a lesion are noted. The histologic appearance of NF, the lesion's myofibroblastic nature, and markers used in diagnosis are discussed.

    Tumour-stroma interaction is a prerequisite for tumour progression in skin cancer. Hereby, a critical step in stromal function is the transition of tumour-associated fibroblasts to MFs (myofibroblasts) by growth factors, for example TGFβ (transforming growth factor beta(). In this study, the...

    Nodular fasciitis (NF), proliferative fasciitis (PF), and proliferative myositis (PM) are pseudosarcomatous lesions that typically resolve spontaneously. We previously reported the feasibility of diagnosing this family of lesions by fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) based on 17 cases. The...
