Abstract

History. Jaffé was the first to describe desmoplastic fibroma in 1958 and distinguish it from fibrosarcoma. As early as 1935, Cappell reported on a case of desmoplastic fibroma of the fibula but called it an endosteal fibroma. A desmoplastic fibroma of the jaw was first mentioned in 1965 (Griffith and Irby).

Synonyms
