Infantile myofibromatosis, or IM, is a rare tumor that grows in the skin, muscle mass, bones, and occasionally in the organs of the breast or abdomen. Most children with IM have purple-colored or skin-colored developments on their skin. Imaging: If your child has symptoms of IM, your physician will use scans such as ultrasound, MRI, or CT to see where the tumor is and how huge it is. Biopsy: To check if the tumor is IM, your physician will do a biopsy, taking a small sample of the tumor with a needle. You must take your child to an expert in IM treatment to determine the most effective approach for their tumor. In this situation it may be safest for your medical professional to inspect your child's tumor typically without treating it. Surgical treatment: In cases where the tumor is expanding in or near the organs, surgery is the primary treatment to prevent and eliminate the tumor damage to the body organs. Radiation treatment: When surgery is not feasible or does not work, radiation treatment may be used to deal with IM.
