We report a case of a young woman with recurrent desmoid tumor. Computed tomography (CT) scans of the chest showed a large mass in the left chest wall. The tumor was unresectable because of the involvement of adjacent structures. Tamoxifen therapy led to marked tumor regression within 3 months. She had preserved her fertility, and thereafter she conceived a baby. In young women with recurrent desmoid tumor, tamoxifen should be considered as the first choice of treatment.
