We report a case of a 60-year-old patient with a large right colonic mass who underwent right hemicolectomy. Histology proved morphological and immuno-histochemical features indicating fibromatosis. This desmoid tumour appeared growing from the colonic wall rather than the mesocolon, confirming a true colonic wall fibromatosis, a deep isolated form of intra-abdominal fibromatosis. Surgical resection is the treatment of choice in isolated well confirmed lesions. Multidisciplinary team approach is crucial for treatment and prognosis.
