Desmoid tumours are histologically benign fibrous neoplasms arising from the musculoaponeurotic structures throughout the body. They are characterized as infiltrative, usually well-differentiated firm overgrowth of fibrous tissue and are locally aggressive. An aggressive clinical behaviour with tendency for recurrence makes the treatment of these relatively rare fibrous tumours difficult. Local ...

Myxomas are rare benign connective tissue tumours of unclear histogenesis. In this case a lateral neck tumour initially behaved, both clinically and radiographically as a lipoma, and was therefore managed conservatively. Subsequently the lesion caused pressure symptoms and therefore a surgical approach was taken with subsequent histology confirming a myxoma. ...
