Abstract

Objective The purpose of this article is to review the etiopathogenesis, molecular cytogenetics, histopathology, clinical features, and multimodality imaging features of desmoid fibromatosis. Recent advances in the management of desmoid fibromatosis will also be discussed. Conclusions Desmoid fibromatosis is a rare soft tissue neoplasm with a high incidence of local recurrence. Imaging plays an important role in the diagnosis and management of this disease.
