ACOSTA-FERIA, Manuel et al. Cervical nodular fasciitis in a pregnant woman: Review of the literature and presentation of a new case. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2010, vol.32, n.3, pp.110-114. ISSN 2173-9161.

The nodular fasciitis is a rare benign lesion of rapid growth, whose pathogenesis is still unknown. While at the head and neck appeared in 20% of cases, its occurrence in pregnant patients is extremely rare. We report the second case described in the literature in which this association is present. Woman of 25 years and 13 weeks pregnant, who had a right auricular tumour 3 cm in diameter, 3 months of development and rapid growth. No facial paralysis or pain in the initial exploration. After surgical resection of the lesion, the final pathological diagnosis of the same was nodular fasciitis. After two years since the surgery, there was no evidence of recurrence of the tumour, taking ad términun pregnancy without complications or the mother or the fetus.

Keywords : Nodular fasciitis; Pregnancy; Head and neck; Parotid gland.
