Desmoid Tumors (DT), a fibromatous proliferative disease, are defined by the World Health Organization as clonal fibroblastic proliferations that arise in the deep soft tissues and are characterized by infiltrative growth and a tendency toward local recurrence but an inability to metastasize. DT are rare tumors, occurring in three to four cases per one million of the U.S. population. DT of the chest wall represents 8% to 10% of all cases. Although surgery is the primary treatment modality, there remains significant controversy amongst surgeons regarding the management of disease involving adjacent breast given the possibility for significant functional and aesthetic compromise. This is a rare and interesting case of a young woman with a massive chest wall DT displacing the breast necessitating extensive chest wall resection and right partial mastectomy.
