Desmoplastic fibroma (DF) of the bone is a very rare benign tumor of the skeletal system with a reported incidence <1.1% of all primary bone tumors. DF of bone is considered to be the skeletal counterpart of extra-abdominal desmoid tumors. The common sites are mandible and tibia. Here, we present a case report of DF of the scapula with a 14-year follow-up. The DF of the scapula is an extremely rare tumor with only six such cases reported in international literature till now.
