Definition of «Fibroma, desmoplastic»

Fibroma, desmoplastic: A rare type of primary bone tumor characteristically composed of well-differentiated cells that produce collagen. Desmoplastic fibromas are discovered most often in the first three decades of life, in the mandible (the femur and pelvis are also favored sites). Although benign, these tumors are locally infiltrative and may cause pain and swelling or an effusion (if near a joint). Treatment is surgical removal but the tumor may recur.
