    Mahmood S and Divyanshu Dua*

    We report a case of a 41-years-old female with a sporadic abdominal wall desmoid tumor. After a period of 12-months observation, chemotherapy was given with Doxorubicin and Dacarbazine to facilitate minimal surgery. The patient received 4 cycles of chemotherapy. Treatment was well tolerated and resulted in a significant reduction of the tumor size from 48mm to 25mm, 48% reduction. The tumor was surgically resected, and the histopathology from the resected specimen revealed a partial pathological response. At 6 months post-surgery, there is no recurrence or surgical complications.
