Hello: Very interesting case. Not seen personally in my practice but considering the differential for boney lesions in the newborn I would agree that this may very well be osteofibrousdysplasia. There have only been a few case reports in the literature of this lesion in a newborn. Perhaps an open biopsy will be necessary to confirm a diagnosis and better direct future care. Good luck. Please give us some follow up when more information becomes available.
