Alternative titles; symbols. Hyaline fibromatosis syndrome is an autosomal recessive condition characterized by abnormal growth of hyalinized fibrous tissue usually affecting subcutaneous regions on the scalp, ears, neck, face, hands, and feet. The lesions appear as pearly papules or fleshy nodules. The severity is variable.

Juvenile hyaline fibromatosis also known as "Fibromatosis hyalinica multiplex juvenilis," [2] "Murray—Puretic—Drescher syndrome" [2] is a very rare , autosomal recessive disease due to mutations in capillary morphogenesis protein-2 CMG-2 gene. It occurs from early childhood to adulthood, and presents as slow-growing, pearly white or skin-colored dermal or subcutaneous papules or nodules on the face , scalp , and back , which may be confused clinically with neurofibromatosis. This condition is characterised by abnormal growth of hyalinized fibrous tissue with cutaneous, mucosal, osteoarticular and systemic involvement. Clinical features include extreme pain at minimal handling in a newborn, gingival hypertrophy, subcutaneous nodules, painful joint stiffness and contractures, muscle weakness and hypotonia. This gene is also known as capillary morphogenesis protein


Juvenile hyaline fibromatosis

Juvenile hyaline fibromatosis is a rare, autosomal-recessive disease characterized by papular and nodular skin lesions, gingival hyperplasia, joint contractures and bone involvement in variable degrees. It is a connective tissue disorder with aberrant synthesis of glycosaminoglycans by fibroblasts. We report a 5-year-old female born of first-degree consanguineous marriage who presented with multiple, recurrent, painless, variable-sized nodules. Fine needle aspiration cytology smears and the subsequent histopathological examination from the nodules showed benign spindle cells in a Periodic acid Schiff-positive myxoid background.
