Abstract: © 2018, Medical Association of Thailand. All rights reserved. Background: Aggressive fibromatosis is rare in the neck and superior mediastinal area Case report: A 76-year-old woman initially presented with a large anterior neck mass with upper airway obstruction due to tracheal compression. Surgical excision was performed 3 years after the initial presentation, followed by post-operative radiation due to positive margin. No evidence of disease recurrence was observed during the 3-year follow up. Conclusion: Aggressive fibromatosis of head and neck is a challenging lesion due to its infiltrative nature, high propencity to recur and proximity to vital structures. Surgery should be well-planned using imaging and multidisciplinary approaches.
