Author information

Safdarjung Hospital, 110 029 New Delhi.


Fibromatosis covers a broad group of benign fibrous tissue proliferations of varied microscopic appearances that are intermediate in their biological behaviour between bengin fibrous tumour and fibrosarcoma, Extra abdominal fibromatosis in the neck occassionally cause serious sequellae when aggressive invasion of vital structure occurs. However, the principle of wide excision is difficult to apply in some patients because of the important organs surrounding the tumour. We describe a primary spindle cell tumour of thyroid that raised initial diagnostic problems and was eventually diagnosed as fibromatosis of thyroid gland.
