PDGFRB-related infantile myofibromatosis

Infantile myofibromatosis is a rare genetic disorder characterized by the development of benign tumors in the skin, muscle, bone, and viscera. The molecular pathogenesis is still incompletely known. An autosomal dominant form had been reported as causally related with mutations in the gene for platelet-derived growth factor receptor beta (PDGFRB).
