We report a 42 years old female that presented with abdominal pain and no palpable mass. Imaging abdominal ultrasound, CAT scan and magnetic resonance showed a solid tumor located in the retroperitoneum. The patient was operated on excising the tumor. Pathological examination of the surgical piece disclosed a retroperitoneal fibromatosis or desmoid tumor. Postoperative evolution of the patient was uneventful and she was discharged 12 days after the surgical procedure
