Abstract

A 69-year-old male who developed a desmoid tumor at the site of his end colostomy after abdominoperineal resection for rectal carcinoma is reported. The tumor was resected with wide margins. Histopathology revealed desmoid tumor of the anterior abdominal wall with no malignant features. The patient had an uneventful postoperative course. To our knowledge, this is the first case of solitary desmoid tumor of anterior abdominal wall at the colostomy site reported in the literature.
