A primary desmoid tumor arising from the chest wall is extremely rare. We report the case of a 57-year-old man presenting with a desmoid tumor arising from his chest wall. Chest radiograph at a regular medical checkup indicated an abnormal shadow. By computed tomography-guided biopsy, he was diagnosed as having a desmoid tumor. He underwent right-sided chest wall resection and reconstruction. Desmoid tumor is histopathologically benign tumor, however, they tend to show high rates of local recurrence after surgery. In case of recurrence on unresectable case, radiotherapy or some medical treatment should be chosen as a treatment option.
