We report a case in which abdominal tattoo margins were modified and used to hide the surgical incision for desmoid tumour removal. Our patient is a 37-year-old female with history remarkable for atrial septal defect closure at the age of ten, but not for previous abdominal surgeries or trauma. A desmoid tumour diagnosis was made upon needle biopsy of the 5 × 4 cm2 mass confined to the rectus abdominis. Subsequently, tumour was resected with an incision through the tattoo upper margin and abdominal wall was reconstructed with primary fascial closure mesh reinforced...

BACKGROUND: Desmoid tumors (DT) are rare clonal proliferations that arise from mesenchymal cells. These tumors do not metastasize but are locally aggressive, and their growth may lead to significant morbidity. Their clinical course is both variable and unpredictable; tumors may rapidly progress but in other instances remain stable or regress without intervention. AIMS: To examine current treatment of DT and assist with decision-making at time of presentation. METHODS: A literature search was conducted of MEDLINE and Cochrane databases for published studies (1995-July 2015) using the search terms fibromatosis aggressive, desmoid with drug therapy, radiation therapy, prevention and control, radiotherapy, surgery, and therapy...

Desmoid fibromatosis (desmoid tumors) is rare tumors. It can occur as intra-abdominal, extraabdominal, or abdominal wall tumor depending on the site. The abdominal wall type is usually sporadic, but few have been associated with familial adenomatous polyposis. They are commonly seen in young females who are pregnant with a history of the previous cesarean section scar or within the 1st year of the last childbirth. There is an association between this tumor, presence of estrogen receptors, and abdominal trauma...

OBJECTIVE: This study examined the types of discordance occurring in the diagnosis of soft tissue and visceral sarcomas, gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST), and desmoid tumors, as well as the economic impact of diagnostic discrepancies. METHODS: We carried out a retrospective, multicenter analysis using prospectively implemented databases performed on a cohort of patients within the French RRePS network in 2010. Diagnoses were deemed to be discordant based on the 2013 World Health Organization (WHO) classification...

Desmoid tumors are rare benign neoplasms with an aggressive local growth. In children, intra-abdominal localization is less frequent and few reports exist in the literature about the management of DTs in those special patients. In our report, we describe a case of a 13-year old patient with a bifocal intra-abdominal DT, treated unsuccessfully with tamoxifene, and we discuss briefly the existing literature data.

BACKGROUND: Dysgerminoma is an uncommon malignant tumor arising from the germ cells of the ovary. Its association with pregnancy is extremely rare; the incidence is about 0.2-1 per 100,000 pregnancies. Because of its infrequency, there are few recommendations regarding its management in pregnancy; therefore, it is important to discuss and summarize the treatment strategy. CASE: We presented a case of a 23-year-old pregnant woman with a large dysgerminoma originated from the right ovary, which had the unusual coincidence of being associated with an abdominal desmoid tumor simultaneously...

Desmoid-type fibromatosis (DF), also known as aggressive fibromatosis, is a locally aggressive benign fibroblastic neoplasm that can infiltrate or recur but cannot metastasize. It is rare, with an estimated annual incidence of two to four new cases per million people. Most DFs occur sporadically, but it may also be associated with the hereditary syndrome familial adenomatous polyposis. Treatment is necessary when the disease is symptomatic, especially in case of compression of critical structures. When possible, surgical resection is the treatment of choice; however, recurrence is common...

The current report presents a case of an omental fibromatosis discovered incidentally in a 46-year-old woman with no particular medical history and few symptoms. A surgical biopsy was performed initially, and microscopic examination revealed myofibroblastic proliferation. After additional immunohistochemical and molecular analyses, omental fibromatosis was diagnosed. Omental fibromatosis, also called intra-abdominal desmoid, is a rare and benign tumour but can be locally aggressive. Majority of cases are asymptomatic, and difficult to diagnose based on clinical presentation and radiological investigation...

PURPOSE: To identify differential clinical and imaging findings between intra-abdominal desmoid tumors and peritoneal seeding that developed after surgery for colorectal cancer. METHODS: 8 patients (9 desmoid tumors) and 11 patients (13 peritoneal seeding masses) were enrolled in our retrospective study. Patients with three or more tumors were excluded. Clinical findings including location of initial tumors, type of surgery, T- and N-stages of initial tumors, time interval between initial surgery and development of intra-abdominal tumors, and level of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) were evaluated...

Desmoid tumors (DTs) are unusual neoplasms of mesenchymal origin that exhibit locally invasive behavior. Surgical resection is the initial treatment of choice for DTs. For patients with recurrent or unresectable disease, however, medical options are limited. Sorafenib is a multikinase inhibitor with known anti-tumor activity in various cancers via suppression of the PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway. Here, we examined the effects of sorafenib on patient-derived DT cell lines, with the aim of characterizing the efficacy and molecular mechanism of action...

BACKGROUND: Controlled ovarian hyperstimulation (COH) followed by oocyte retrieval is a leading option for fertility preservation before chemotherapy, yet this procedure causes excessive serum levels of estradiol (E2), which are often detrimental for cancer patients. Aromatase inhibitors are often used in breast cancer patients during COH to prevent elevated levels of E2. OBJECTIVES: To describe our experience with COH for oocyte cryopreservation in non-breast cancer patients using aromatase inhibitors...

RATIONALE: Aggressive fibromatosis (AF) of abdominal wall is also called desmoid tumor, ligament tumor, fibrous tissue tumor hyperplasia, tendon membrane fibroma or soft tissue ligament fibroma, etc. Aggressive fibromatosis of abdominal wall was first described by MacFarlane in 1832, and it was named for the first time by Muller according to its general appearance and texture in 1838. This disease has been mistaken for a benign lesions for a long time because when the cells were examined by pathology often show normal mitosis, and distant metastases are not found clinically, but actually the disease is locally invasive and shows a local invasive growth...

We report a case of desmoid fibromatosis of the chest wall. A 70-year-old woman was referred to our hospital with right shoulder blade pain and paresthesia over the right upper breast. Chest X-ray and computed tomography demonstrated a 5 cm right apical mass in the chest. Biopsy of the mass demonstrated features of desmoid fibromatosis. The patient subsequently underwent surgical resection of the mass and received adjuvant radiation therapy for microscopic positive margins. In conclusion, although desmoid tumour of the chest is rare, it is worth considering in the differential diagnoses of chest wall tumours...

The aim of this retrospective cohort study was to review urological complication rates arising from familial adenomatous polyposis associated desmoid tumours and their management. All patients over a 35-year period were identified from a prospectively maintained polyposis registry database and had an intra-abdominal desmoid tumour. Those without ureteric complications (n = 118, group A) were compared to those that developed ureteric obstruction (n = 40, group B) for demographics, treatment interventions and survival outcomes...

Breast fibromatosis, also referred to as desmoid tumor or aggressive fibromatosis, is a very rare, locally aggressive disease that does not metastasize. Bilateral lesions are extremely rare and are found in only 4% of patients with breast fibromatosis. Tumor recurrence following surgery occurs in 18%-29% of patients, most often within the first 2 years after surgery. In this report, we discuss a case of breast fibromatosis, mimicking a breast carcinoma both clinically and radiologically, that presented clinically with dimpling of the skin of the left breast in a 31-year-old woman...

PURPOSE: Radiation therapy (RT) is often used in the treatment of unresectable or recurrent aggressive fibromatosis (also known as desmoid tumor) typically with excellent local control. Prior reports have suggested that local control in pediatric patients with aggressive fibromatosis is poor. We aimed to report a long-term single-institution experience with the radiotherapeutic treatment of these tumors with a focus on age-dependent outcomes. METHODS AND MATERIALS: A total of 101 patients treated with RT for aggressive fibromatosis between 1975 and 2015 at a single institution were identified...
