Desmoid tumor is a benign tumor which originates from musculoaponeurotic system, can reach greater sizes with local invasion among facial plans, and cause severe deformities, morbidity and even mortality by compression of adjacent structures. These tumors are rarely seen in the head and neck region. The treatment of advanced desmoid tumors of head and neck region is surgery and radiotherapy.
