Abstract: A very large desmoid tumour extensively involving the chest wall and the left anterior abdominal wall is described in a patient with a family history of Gardner's syndrome. The desmoid arose at the site of a thoracotomy scar due to the removal of a large aneurysm of the left atrial appendage five years before. Both a plastic surgeon and a thoracic surgeon were required to remove the tumour. Aneurysmal dilatation of the left atrium is extremely rare and has not been reported in association with Gardner's syndro… Show more

“… 4 Patients with these conditions require extensive tests to rule out involvement of organ systems, including the heart. Interestingly, a desmoid-type tumor in a patient with Gardner's syndrome was associated with left atrial aneurysm in another case report, 5 the same condition our patient was suffering from. This would be the second case an association between these conditions was described in literature.…”

“…3,[5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16] Desmoid-type fibromatosis following thoracotomy for malignancy should be discriminated from chest wall recurrence or dissemination of the previous disease. The tumors can be divided into chest wall and intrathoracic desmoid-type fibromatoses ( Table 1).…”
