Abstract

Juvenile fibromatotsis is very uncommon and determins locally agressive fibroblastic proliferation. The location in the paranasal sinus is even more uncommon and only 6 more cases have been reported in the world until now, this being the first one in our country. The election treatment for this pathology is surgery with large resection margins, radio and chemiotherapy being used only for unresectable tumours or agressive reccurences. Our aim is to present an exceptionally rare case of intracranial juvenile fibromatosis on a 2 year old pacient treated surgically in a transnasal endoscopic manner using high precision equipment.
