Özet

Desmoids, also known as aggressive fibromatoses, are locally invasive tumors that are intermediate in their biological behavior that lies between benign fibrous proliferations and low-grade fibrosarcomas. In this report, we present a case of a young female patient with a huge tumoral mass located in the right shoulder region that recurred after total resection and was resistant to radio-chemo-hormonal therapy. Eventually, she responded to 1,25-(OH)(2)-vitamin D-3 treatment.
