Abstract

Desmoid tumors are rare, benign, and locally aggressive neoplasms that stem from connective tissue that have high rates of recurrence after surgery. Intra-abdominal desmoid-type fibromatosis can arise in 2 forms: sporadic or hereditary (associated with familial adenomatous polyposis and Gardner syndrome). The diagnosis of desmoid-type tumors is based on imaging modalities and histopathological examination. The primary treatment is resection surgery. We report a 64-year-old male with a distal pancreatic desmoid tumor. We focus on tumor management by the application of radiological modalities and pathological analysis.
