Abstract: Fibromatosis Colli also known as congenital torticollis is a rare cause of benign cervical pseudo tumor in neonates, consisting of benign fibrous tissue proliferation within the sternocleidomastoid muscle, resulting in a fusiform enlargement. The origin of fibromatosis colli has been linked to traumatic birth, intrauterine malposition, or vascular occlusion resulting in hemorrhage and, subsequently, fibrosis. . Because of its low cost, lack of ionizing radiation, and the fact that no sedation is needed, Ultrasonography has proven to become the modality of choice when evaluating infants who present with a pediatric neck mass. Ultrasound plays a necessary role in confirming this diagnosis and follow - up. We Report a case of Fibromatosis colli in a six - week old newborn who was diagnosed using Ultrasonography and treated with physiotherapy.
