Desmoids tumours of the abdomen are uncommon benign tumours with varied presentations. The diagnosis is frequently established by histological examination. These tumours are known to recur even after surgical excision. A case report of a 41-year-old female with a painless abdominal mass has been presented. She was found to have a firm, non-tender, immobile, and regular mass in the left lumbar region of the abdominal wall. Her CT scan and FNAC revealed a benign-natured lesion. The patientâ€™s mass was completely excised and the histology confirmed desmoids tumour of the abdominal wall. The rarity of such lesions warrants that the treating physicians should have a high degree of suspicion while managing abdominal masses of a questionable nature.
