Aggressive Fibromatosis (AF) is a rare disease that originates from fibroblasts in deep soft tissues. Surgery and radiotherapy are the main treatment options, while there is still controversial with systematic treatment for patients who cannot undergo surgery or radiotherapy. Here, we reported a case of a 53-year-old Chinese woman with gastric cancer combined with aggressive fibromatosis. She was firstly diagnosed early gastric cancer, which was curative by surgery. While, a solid mass located in the epigastric region was detected at a follow-up examination after 2 years. Then, puncture biopsy of abdominal mass was conducted, and subsequent histopathology confirmed aggressive fibromatosis. The patient received apatinib combined with celecoxib. Amazingly, the tumor was regressed remarkably, and achieved clinical Complete Response (cCR). In conclusion, apatinib combined with celecoxib was an effective and safe treatment strategy for aggressive fibromatosis.
