Desmoid tumors are rare fibrous tumors of the soft tissues. Develops on the abdominal wall, in the abdomen, or extra-abdominal. Parietal location is very common among women. Hormonal factors are incriminated. They are rare lesions without any metastatic potential a strong tendency to invade locally and to recur. Hormonal factors are incriminated in this pathology. Imaging can characterize these tumors and their reports and guide the biopsy that is the key to diagnosis. The treatment is based on first-line surgery, but in cases where excision margins are reached, local recurrence or unresectable tumors, other therapeutic alterations are needed such as radiotherapy and chemotherapy and others. We report a periumbilical case in perimenopause.
