Abstract

We present a case of infantile myofibromatosis of the lung detected at 32 weeks' gestation. The fetus was monitored with weekly ultrasound examinations measuring the mass size and amniotic fluid index. On day 2 after delivery, due to respiratory distress, an exploratory thoracotomy was undertaken and the mass was resected. (c) 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Clin Ultrasound41:38-41, 2013
