Juvenile hyaline fibromatosis (also known as "Fibromatosis hyalinica multiplex juvenilis,"[1] "Murray–Puretic–Drescher syndrome"[1]) 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.[2]
