Abstract

Desmoplastic fibroma is one of the uncommon osseous tumors that present in the skull. Although classified as benign tumor, desmoplastic fibroma exhibits local aggressiveness and has a high potential for recurrence. The most common sites include metaphysis of long bones and mandible. Only 15cases have been described in the skull. We report the 16th case of desmoplastic fibroma of the skull.
