Languages of publication
Desmoid (desmoid tumor) is a cytologically benign fibrous tumor that originates from musculoskeletal structures of the entire body . The term „desmoid”, first introduced by Muller in 1838, derives from the Greek word desmos, which means tendinous . The etiopathogenesis of desmoid is not fully understood, most reports of publications regarding its treatment are based on individual case reports. The prognosis is good, and healing is achieved mainly through surgical excision of the lesion. The aim of the paper is to present a case of a 33-year-old woman with diagnosed familial polyposis in the colon, who has been identified with mesenteric desmoid.
