Mesenteric Fibromatosis in Gardner Syndrome

slide 8 of 16


Comments:
Fibromatosis in Gardner syndrome tends to have prominent myxoid matrix but is otherwise identical to that seen elsewhere. In majority of the cases, mesenteric or retroperitoneal fibromatosis manifests 1-2 yrs. after prophylactic colectomy. It is the major cause of death in polyposis patients who have undergone prophylactic surgery.
