Aggressive fibromatosis - case report

Jelena Roganović, Silvije Šegulja


Aggressive fibromatosis or desmoid tumors are slowly growing fibroblastic neoplasms of intermediate malignancy. They are very rare in children.

After surgical excision and re-excision, she had an evident local progression and received systemic chemotherapy. The complexity of recognition and multidisciplinary management with an individualized approach is highlighted.
