Cervical Desmoid Tumor: About a Case and Review of Literature

Desmoid tumors (DTs), also called well-differentiated fibromatosis, are circumscribed but not histologically encapsulated benign neoplasms infiltrating muscles and fascia. They tend to be locally infiltrating and recurrent but without metastatic potential. These tumors are most often located in the abdominal and thoracic wall, cervical localization is rare.

We report on a 32-year-old patient who presented with a laterocervical desmoid tumor (DT) that was recused from surgery and who received neo-adjuvant chemotherapy with lesional stability and adjuvant radiotherapy.
