Abstract

NTF is a rare, tumorlike accumulation of collagen that often affects the posterior neck region but can also occur in a number of other sites. The process has a strong association with diabetes and also appears to be linked to Gardner's syndrome. Local recurrence probably reflects the persistence of local or systemic factors related to its pathogenesis.
