Congenital primary embryonal carcinoma of the forehead in a female infant

Abstract

Head and neck tumors in the newborn are rare. Communication with the meninges or CNS should be suspected in lesions involving the midline of the upper face, the nasal cavity, or the nasopharynx. Most congenital tumors are caused by developmental error or neoplasia developing from pluripotential embryonal cells. The lesion presented by Clark and Hanson, congenital epulis, is nearly identical with the so-called granular cell myoblastoma seen in the tongue and larynx in adults. Pedunculated lesions that interfere with breathing or feeding can often be removed with the aid of an endoscope during the neonatal period.
