Desmoid tumour/aggressive fibromatosis (DT/AF) is a rare soft-tissue neoplasm that is locally aggressive but does not metastasize. There is no standard systemic treatment for symptomatic patients, although a number of agents are used. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors have recently been reported to show useful activity. We reviewed our bi-institutional (Royal Marsden Hospital, Cambridge University Hospitals) experience with the tyrosine kinase inhibitor pazopanib in the treatment of progressing DT/AF. Eight patients with DT/AF were treated with pazopanib at Royal Marsden Hospital and Cambridge University Hospitals between June 2012 and June 2016...

BACKGROUND: Desmoid tumors (aggressive fibromatosis) are rare soft tissue tumors which frequently recur after surgery. Desmoid tumors arise from musculoaponeurotic tissue in the extremities, head and neck, abdominal wall, or intra-abdominally. Our aim was to examine the outcome of radiotherapy of desmoid tumors in a single institution series. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We evaluated 41 patients with desmoid tumors treated with 49 radiotherapies between 1987 and 2012...

Neuromuscular choristoma (NMC) is a rare benign peripheral nerve lesion consisting of mature skeletal muscle fibers admixed with nerve fascicles. Aggressive fibromatosis frequently develops in association with NMC, often after surgery or biopsy, but the exact pathogenesis is not known. We present a case of NMC complicated by aggressive fibromatosis evaluated by F-FDG PET/CT and examine the relationship of metabolic activity and MRI signal characteristics.

BACKGROUND: Aggressive fibromatosis (AF), also known as desmoid tumor, is an uncommon soft tissue neoplasm. AF does not metastasize, but it is locally invasive and its propensity for recurrence after conservative resection is well documented. No effective cytotoxic treatment has been reported, hence there is a need for novel treatment strategies. CASE PRESENTATION: We present the case of an AF successfully treated with an oral tyrosine kinase inhibitor, pazopanib, with mild side effects...

Fibromatosis and/or desmoid tumors which constitute less than 1% of all neoplasms and 3.0% of all soft-tissue tumors are pathologically benign proliferations of the fibroblasts but are locally aggressive with infiltrative type of growth and tendency toward recurrence. Bilateral symmetrical perirenal involvement has been described in many conditions which can be renal, subcapsular, or perirenal in origin. However, bilateral perirenal fibromatosis as an isolated presentation was very uncommon. We report an exceptionally rare case of bilateral perirenal fibromatosis with renal infiltration...

Soft tissue sarcomas (STS) are rare tumours arising in mesenchymal tissues, and can occur almost anywhere in the body. Their rarity, and the heterogeneity of subtype and location means that developing evidence-based guidelines is complicated by the limitations of the data available. However, this makes it more important that STS are managed by teams, expert in such cases, to ensure consistent and optimal treatment, as well as recruitment to clinical trials, and the ongoing accumulation of further data and knowledge...

Desmoid-type fibromatosis (DF) is a locally aggressive benign soft tissue tumor. It is rarely observed in the head and neck region and is particularly uncommon in the parotid gland. This report describes the case of a 32-month-old girl with DF of the head and neck. The tumor was resected with gross residual tumors. Recurrence occurred 3 months later and then the patient was treated with iodine-125 interstitial brachytherapy. The tumor was completely absent 6 months after brachytherapy. No recurrence was found 60 months after brachytherapy during follow-up...

: Thyroid fibromatosis is a very rare lesion; to our knowledge, there are only four cases reported in the medical literature. Herein, we report the clinical case of a woman with thyroid fibromatosis with a long follow-up (11 years). A 63-year-old female patient, with an increasing multinodular goitre without compressive symptoms, was admitted to total thyroidectomy. The histology revealed a spindle-cell proliferation with fibroblastic characteristics with no atypia and thin capillary vessels...

Tumour infiltration of the carotid arteries, especially the common carotid artery (CCA) and the internal carotid artery (ICA), is a great challenge in maxillofacial surgery. Cases in which the malignant tumour and/or lymph node is stuck to the carotid artery, especially the ICA, have previously been considered inoperable. Four such cases, two with recurrent metastatic nodal neck masses encasing the ICA, one with aggressive fibromatosis, and one with a carotid body tumour, are described herein. Successful resection of the mass along with the ICA was performed in all cases after a positive balloon occlusion test...

Various histological variants of papillary thyroid carcinoma have been reported, some with clinical implications, some with peculiar, sometimes misleading morphologies. One of these rare and poorly characterized variants is papillary thyroid carcinoma with nodular fasciitis-like stroma, of which fewer than 30 cases have been documented, mostly as isolated reports. It is a dual tumor comprising a malignant epithelial proliferation that harbors typical features of conventional papillary thyroid carcinoma, admixed with a prominent mesenchymal proliferation resembling nodular fasciitis or fibromatosis...

Desmoid tumors, also known as aggressive fibromatosis, are locally infiltrating musculoaponeurotic neoplasms arising in connective tissues. Desmoid tumors may be associated with familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), a genetic disorder that presents with hundreds to thousands of precancerous colorectal polyps. The authors report the case of an 18-month-old boy who underwent resection of a right temporal desmoid tumor (initially diagnosed as cranial fasciitis) and developed a bilateral frontoparietal calvarial desmoid tumor 2 years later...

Desmoid-type fibromatosis of the breast (also referred to as desmoid tumor or aggressive fibromatosis) is exceedingly rare. Although it does not metastasize, desmoid-type fibromatosisis is frequently locally aggressive. Recurrence is common (up to 35%), even after presumed total excision of the primary tumor [1]. The breast is an unusual location for the development of this tumor, with relatively few cases reported in the literature. We report a case of desmoid-type fibromatosis in the breast in a 31-year-old female who presented with a four-month history of a palpable left breast mass...

BACKGROUND: The efficacy of the classical treatment modalities surgery and radiotherapy in the treatment of aggressive fibromatosis is presently disputed and there is a shift towards a more conservative approach. The aim of the present study is to objectify tumor growth in patients with extra-abdominal or abdominal wall aggressive fibromatosis, while adhering to a "watchful waiting" policy. Other objectives are to investigate quality of life and to identify factors associated with tumor growth, in particular the relation with the presence of a CTNNB1-gene mutation in the tumor...

BACKGROUND: Nearly half of soft tissue sarcomas are nonrhabdomyosarcomas (NRSTSs). The low-grade (LG) form comprises a heterogenous group of diseases that rarely metastasize but are known for local recurrence. AIM OF THE STUDY: The aim of the study was to retrospectively evaluate pediatric LG-NRSTS with regard to demography, survival, and factors affecting outcome in Egyptian patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study reviewed 66 NRSTS patients who presented to the Pediatric Oncology Department, National Cancer Institute, Cairo University, between January 2008 and December 2013...

Extra-abdominal desmoid tumor, also known as aggressive fibromatosis, has aggressive behavior with local infiltration and tendency for recurrence. Though head and neck is reported to be one of the most common sites, a desmoid tumor in the larynx is extremely rare. A 67-year-old male visited our hospital with prolonged hoarseness and received laryngo-microsurgery with the diagnosis of laryngeal polyp. After the operation, he eventually developed a laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma with papilloma, confirmed by second laryngo-microsurgery and received radiation therapy...

AIMS: The purpose of the study was to review a large series of chest aggressive fibromatosis (AF) cases with an emphasis on the outcomes of different degrees of resection and the value of postoperative radiotherapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The records of patients with chest AF treated at our hospital from 1982 to 2014 were retrospectively reviewed. Recurrence rates and non-disease survival (NDS) times were compared between the R0, R1, and R2 resection groups. RESULTS: Forty-seven cases of chest AF were treated during the study period (21 men, 26 women), with an average age at diagnosis of 40 years (range, 9-77 years)...

Pediatric fibroblastic and myofibroblastic tumors are a relatively common group of soft-tissue proliferations that are associated with a wide spectrum of clinical behavior. These tumors have been divided into the following categories on the basis of their biologic behavior: benign (eg, myositis ossificans, myofibroma, fibromatosis colli), intermediate-locally aggressive (eg, lipofibromatosis, desmoid fibroma), intermediate-rarely metastasizing (eg, inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors, infantile fibrosarcoma, low-grade myofibroblastic sarcoma), and malignant (eg, fibromyxoid sarcoma, adult fibrosarcoma)...
