Adult fibromatoses comprise a diverse group of benign fibrous tissue proliferations that have behavioral characteristics between those of benign fibrous lesions and those of fibrosarcoma. Adult fibromatoses are classified according to anatomic location and clinical manifestations into two broad groups-deep and superficial-with several subdivisions. This article reviews the magnetic resonance imaging findings of fibromatoses, stressing that the varying cellular content and composition of the mass is responsible for the range of magnetic resonance imaging signal intensities seen within the different fibromatoses.
