Fibromatosis which are among primary chest wall tumors are rare chest wall lesions. Despite lack of known etiological factors, several factors including trauma, hormonal disorders, previous operations, genetic factors, and Gardner syndrome has been considered to play a role in the development of the disease. There are two main groups according to facial or musculo-aponeurotic tissue involvement. Extensive resection is of utmost importance due to high local recurrence rate, despite benign nature of the lesions. In recent years, radiotherapy following surgery has been also recommended to prevent recurrences.
