Abstract

We report on a case of multiple dermatomyofibromas on the posterior neck of a 10-year-old boy. Dermatomyofibroma is a benign proliferation of myofibroblasts of the skin. It is more common in adolescents and young adults, with a female preponderance. It usually appears as a single plaque or nodule. To our knowledge, this is the first case of multiple dermatomyofibromas reported in the literature.
