J Med Case Rep
Here we report a very rare entity of an infratemporal region aggressive fibromatosis in a 23-year-old Tharu man who had presented with the symptoms of painless but progressive trismus (lockjaw). Radiological imaging as well as an immunohistochemistry panel from a biopsy indicated a diagnosis of an aggressive fibromatosis. Since there was no aggravation in his trismus following surgery and because of his poor socioeconomic status, he was advised to attend regular follow-up visits without any adjuvant therapy. This case report adds to the notion of keeping the differential diagnosis of an aggressive fibromatosis in all patients presenting with progressive but painless trismus. The characteristic imaging findings as well an immunohistochemistry panel will help us clinch the correct diagnosis.
