Desmoid tumor / fibromatosis

Desmoid tumor / fibromatosis >>

Aggressive fibromatosis is a rare condition marked by the presence of desmoid tumors, which are benign,

slow-growing musculoaponeurotic tumors without any metastatic potential.

However, aggressive fibromatosis is locally aggressive. Despite their benign nature, they can damage nearby structures causing organ dysfunction.

Histologically they resemble low-grade fibrosarcomas, but they are very locally aggressive and tend to recur even after complete resection.
