Fibromatosis (desmoid tumor) involving the orbit and cheek
Desmoid tumors are benign, noninflammatory tumors that consist of infiltrative fibrotic tissue arising in muscloaponeurotic structures. They are rare lesions, representing < 3% of all soft-tissue tumors. Although benign, they can cause significant morbidity through local invasion and have a tendency to recur following surgical excision. We report a case of a desmoid tumor involving the orbit and cheek that was too diffuse for surgical resection and was successfully treated with systemic chemotherapy.

Abstract

Desmoid tumors are benign, noninflammatory tumors that consist of infiltrative fibrotic tissue arising in muscloaponeurotic structures. They are rare lesions, representing < 3% of all soft-tissue tumors. Although benign, they can cause significant morbidity through local invasion and have a tendency to recur following surgical excision. We report a case of a desmoid tumor involving the orbit and cheek that was too diffuse for surgical resection and was successfully treated with systemic chemotherapy.
