Abstract

Desmoid tumors (DTs) are frequently associated with either surgical trauma, like scars, or physiologic trauma, like pregnancy. A DT arising in a cesarean scar during pregnancy shows both correlations. A case of DT that grew gradually in a cesarean scar during the first trimester of a subsequent pregnancy is presented. After initial MR imaging, the lesion was biopsied and carefully monitored; immediate surgical removal was considered at any time if indicated by the follow-up results. No increase in the tumor size was observed during the following 6 months of gestation, and the lesion was extirpated with mesh replacement of the abdominal defect at the time of cesarean section.
