Abstract

Desmoid tumors, or aggressive fibromatoses, are rare, histologically benign tumors with biologic behavior that is intermediate between benign fibrous proliferations and low-grade fibrosarcoma. These tumors can cause significant morbidity and mortality by their propensity for local invasion and recurrence following surgical excision. A case of an anterior mediastinal desmoid tumor in a 67-year-old woman is reported with computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging findings.
