Desmoid are rare soft tissue tumours most commonly seen in females between 20-40 years of age.They are known for their infiltrative pattern of growth and local recurrence. Diagnosis through clinical presentation imaging and histopathology forms the key to differentiate Desmoid tumours from other soft tissue sarcomas like Fibro sarcomas to offer correct treatment.Here we report one such case of Desmoid tumour of the anterior abdominal wall in a female patient which was removed by radical resection.

Key words: Desmoid tumour, abdominal wall, local recurrence, spindle shaped cells.
