ABSTRACT
We present a rare case of a desmoid tumour presenting with perforation of the small bowel, Although desmoid is classified pathologically as a benign tumour, its infiltrative nature leads to a locally aggressive mass, which can invade surrounding structures and organs making surgical resection difficult. Some unresectable tumours show oestrogen receptor positive cells and can be managed with tamoxifen. The aetiology, investigation and management options are briefly described
