Fibromatosis is a locally infiltrative fibrous tissue proliferation with a tendency to recur locally. From a large series of head and neck patients treated between 1977 and 1994 in our institute, we retrieved the records of nine adult patients diagnosed with this disease. They serve as examples to demonstrate this rare entity in the head and neck. Five out of nine lesions were localized in level V (posterior triangle of the neck). The majority of patients were treated by surgery in combination with radiotherapy. None of the patients died of the disease.
