Desmoid Tumours (DTs) are rare, representing about 3% of all soft tissue tumours, they develop from supporting tissues and fascia. They are characterized by a slow-growing and progressively enlarging tumours. Histologically benign, but locally aggressive. Radiotherapy has improved local control by reducing local recurrence rates. We report 5 cases of patients with desmoid tumour collected in the radiotherapy department of the University Hospital HASSAN II of Fes, treated by surgery and adjuvant radiotherapy.
