Limits on Surgical Treatment of Desmoid Tumors in Familiar Adenomatous Polyposis

Summary

Desmoid tumors are an increasingly observed extracolonic manifestation of FAP, causing severe morbidity. Modalities for adequate treatment have yet to be established, since surgical approach leads to a high rate of recurrence and reports regarding medical treatment with antiestrogens, NSAIDS, chemotherapeutica and cortisone remain anecdotal. The analysis of 20 FAP patients with desmoid tumors insinuates a profitable course of the diesease in nonsurgically treated patients.
