Key points
  1. Congenital myofibroma presenting at birth is a rare clinical finding.
  2. Ulcerating myofibromatous lesions can have significant consequences if not managed urgently, especially due to the risk of major bleeding and subsequent multi-organ failure.
  3. This case supports the need for devising major haemorrhage protocols in neonates.
