Eyesan SU, Kehinde TG, Adesina AS, Ayeni CS, Abdulkareem BF - Niger Med J (2015 Mar-Apr)

Bottom Line: He had a second recurrence 9 months after and had to have another excision.The last tumour excision left only the part of the left ulna that forms the proximal radioulnar joint and elbow joint.Patient has been followed up after the last excision for 18 months with no recurrence.

ABSTRACT
A fibroma is a benign tumour composed of fibrous connective tissue and they can grow in all organs. They can be classified based on consistency into hard or soft fibroma, based on histological characteristics into desmoplastic, chondromyxoid, ossifying, non-ossifying fibroma. They can also be classified based on tissue of origin or location in the body, it can also be classified into superficial or deep fibroma. This is a report of a 15-year-old Nigerian boy with a recurrent left ulnar tumour which was rapidly growing and has been excised three times. Preoperative investigations, i.e., plain radiograph, full blood count and fine needle aspiration cytology were done. Patient could not afford CT scan which was requested for. First excision was in 2009. Recurred within 1 year and had a repeat excision in 2011. He had a second recurrence 9 months after and had to have another excision. The last tumour excision left only the part of the left ulna that forms the proximal radioulnar joint and elbow joint. Patient has been followed up after the last excision for 18 months with no recurrence.

Mentions: Patient presented at Bowen University Teaching Hospital (BUTH) about 1 year after the first excision with a recurrence at the same location of 6-month duration. Plain radiograph after recurrence, before repeat excision is as shown in Figure 2. He subsequently had a repeat excision. He represented at BUTH, Ogbomoso 9 months after the second excision with a recurrence at the same location for which he had another excision leaving only the part of the left ulna that forms the proximal radioulnar joint and the elbow joint as shown in Figure 3. The histological features of the excised specimen have remained the same with each excision.
