Desmoid tumors are localized, appearing in a decreasing order of frequency in the structures of the abdominal wall, the peripheral muscle fascia or more rarely in the intra-abdominal contents (mesentery, retroperitoneum).
We report the case of a 32 years old female patient who had a desmoid tumor of the abdominal wall discovered during pregnancy. And from this clinical case we will focus on the difficulties of their therapeutic management, recalling through a literature review, the clinical, paraclinical and therapeutic features of these tumors.
