Corresponding author: D C Stefan cs sun. Desmoid tumours are a rare group of locally aggressive, non-malignant tumours of fibroblastic origin that can result in significant morbidity due to local invasion. Facial involvement in children with aggressive fibromatosis is uncommon.

Fibromatosis is a common skin disease of white-tailed deer, mule deer, black-tailed deer, and other Cervidae in North America. There is evidence that the skin tumors, called fibromas, are caused by a papilloma virus. Large, warty growths, or fibromas appear as firm, round, nodular, hairless, pigmented skin abnormalities adhered to or incorporated within the skin of deer.
Fibromatosis is a condition where fibrous overgrowths of dermal and subcutaneous connective tissue develop tumours called fibromas. These fibromas are usually benign non-cancerous. There appear to be many different ways to classify fibromatosis.
Fibromatosis is a benign tumorous condition of the soft tissues arising from musculoaponeurotic structures of the body. The commonest site of origin is the anterior abdominal wall. It is rarely seen in the facial region. Some of them are locally aggressive and have a high recurrence rate, following inadequate resection.
Background: Juvenile Hyaline Fibromatosis is a rare autosomal recessive connective tissue disorder. Case Characteristics: Three year old girl with multiple facial nodules, gingival hypertrophy and multiple joint contractures. Her sibling, male child also had similar findings which was progressive and he died at 2 years.
Desmoid tumor commonly develops in the fibrous connective tissues of the body that connect, support, and surround other body parts and organs. The myofibroblast is the cell responsible for the desmoid tumor. A desmoid tumor can invade surrounding tissues and be difficult to control. They can develop at any body site.
