Desmoid tumors are slow-growing benign tumors. These tumors infiltrate surrounding tissues but not malignant and associated with women of fertile age, especially during and after pregnancy. We report a young male patient with a recurrent desmoid tumor of the anterior abdominal wall who underwent resection four times earlier. The patient had a history of four-time operation over the same site for the same disease. Preoperative evaluation included thorough clinical examination with abdominal ultrasound. The histology revealed a desmoid tumor. Primary surgical resection and immediate reconstruction of abdominal defect were performed.
