Abstract

Abdominal fibromatosis should be considered in female patients of childbearing age who present with a mass arising from the abdominal musculature, particularly if the mass becomes evident during or immediately after gestation. Magnetic resonance imaging, with its multiplanar imaging capabilities, is useful in characterizing soft tissue tumors and in defining the extent of tumor involvement of adjacent structures.
