    Rationale: Infantile desmoid fibromatosis of the postcricoid area is a rare disease and is characterized by a proliferation of fibrous tissue with non-metastasis, local infiltration, and a high rate of recurrence after surgical resection. Currently, ultrasound is scarcely used in the hypopharynx and larynx area.

    Patient Concerns: A 4-year-old boy presented with hoarseness, deep voice and snoring for 2∼4 years without any surgical history. On sonography, the lesion was found in the postcricoid area, and the left larynx showed impaired mobility in real time observation. Complete excision with a negative margin in this pivotal anatomic area is impossible, and necessitates a long-time surveillance.

    Diagnoses: Infantile desmoid fibromatosis of the postcricoid area was diagnosed according to surgery and histopathology.

    Interventions: Local excision was carried out to relieve the upper airway narrowing.

    Outcomes: Relieved hoarseness and snoring were reported on the latest follow-up. A residual lesion was seen in the surgical bed and maintained a stable extent on ultrasound and MR imaging after a year.

    Lessons: Considering the non-radiation merit and diagnostic ability, ultrasonography is advocated as a valuable supplementary imaging method to CT, MR and laryngoscopy in the juvenile larynx and hypopharynx.

    Extra-abdominal desmoid tumor, also known as aggressive fibromatosis, has aggressive behavior with local infiltration and tendency for recurrence. Though head and neck is reported to be one of the most common sites, a desmoid tumor in the larynx is extremely rare. A 67-year-old male visited our hospital with prolonged hoarseness and received laryngo-microsurgery with the diagnosis of laryngeal polyp. Read More
    Desmoid-type fibromatosis of the breast: A case report.

    Desmoid-type fibromatosis of the breast (also referred to as desmoid tumor or aggressive fibromatosis) is exceedingly rare. Although it does not metastasize, desmoid-type fibromatosisis is frequently locally aggressive. Recurrence is common (up to 35%), even after presumed total excision of the primary tumor [1].
