Jaffe (1958) described 5 cases of a benign bone tumour in long bones presenting clinically with only mild pain, casting radiologically soap bubble appearance, and having histological resemblance to desmoid tumours of abdominal wall. He levelled these intra-osseous fibrous tumours as desmoplastic fibroma of bone. A review of literature up to 1968 by Rabhan and Rosoi, revealed 25 cases reported. Since then only a few more reports have been published. Sugiura (1976) is credited not only for reporting one case of his own and reviewing the world literature but also, for discussing the behaviour and treatment of these tumours. One case of desmoplsatic fibroma of bone seen by us in December,1976, is presented as the first case reported. From India.
