Recurrent Giant Sarcoma of the Anterior Abdominal Wall


Horia Doran

Abdominal wall sarcomas are rare tumors with a high recurrence rate. We present the case report of a 48-yearold female patient, who was admitted for an asymmetric, voluminous tumor in the lower abdomen, which had been rapidly increasing during the previous two months. The tumor was painless and fixed to the abdominal wall. Two other sarcomas had been resected from the same place, 2 years before-the former and 7 months before-the latter. The patient underwent a surgical procedure, consisting of a wide, tumor-free margin resection, which led to the removal of the rectus abdominis muscles under the umbilicus; abdominal wall reconstruction required a prosthetic mesh. Post-operative course did not include significant issues. Adjuvant radiotherapy was indicated, in order to decrease the risk of another recurrence.
