Desmoid-type fibromatosis (DF) is a benign but rare soft tissue tumour, occurring only in 2-4 persons in one million of the population . Its local invasiveness and high tendency to recur following resection contribute to its notorious reputation for being an aggressive type of fibromatosis. It may be encountered across all demographic but more commonly seen between the second and fourth decade of life with a female predilection. As it originated from the musculoaponeurotic structures throughout the body, it may affect any site, with the limbs and abdomen being the more commonly reported encountered sites. Chest wall DF only represents about 8-10% of the incidence. In this report, we describe our encounter with a case of chest wall DF and how it presents in the different radiological modalities that we have in our centre.
