Fibromatosis are proliferations of highly differentiated fibrous tissue. The deep or musculoaponeurotic types of fibromatosis are known as desmoid tumors, aggressive fibromatosis, or desmoid-type fibrosarcoma. It is commonly seen as abdominal tumors; the occurrence of these tumors in maxillofacial region is a rare entity. We report a case of aggressive fibromatosis in a 50-year-old female, who presented with a swelling of the left side of the face. The tumor was extending in to the maxillary antrum which was confirmed as aggressive fibromatosis on histopathological examination. The detailed discussion of etiology, incidence, management and prognosis of the same in corelation with the literature is presented in the article.
