Giant intraperitoneal desmoid tumor. A case report
Freschi G., Taddei A., Giani J., Giannelli M., Bechi P
The rarity of desmoid tumours is perhaps the main reason why aetiopathogenesis studies and the treatment of these tumours have failed to progress. Even rarer is their intraperitoneal localisation as in the clinical case described here. From the therapeutic viewpoint, the biological characteristics of desmoid tumours make removal operations, which must be radical with extensive unimpaired margins, extremely difficult. These neoplasias in fact infiltrate the surrounding tissues tenaciously to the point that, frequently, their removal is incomplete and local recurrences occur.
