Case Study
The article presents a case study on the recurrence of desmoid tumor of the buttock in a preadolescent child. It is reported that after a year of monitoring, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) result showed that the patient had local recurrence measuring 8 cm x 5 cm infero-laterally to the previous scar. It is suggested that the intra-operative electron radiotherapy (IOERT) in patients with aggressive fibromatosis is feasible with low toxicity and is known to yield good local control rates.
