Abstract

Desmoid tumours are benign neoplasms of myofibroblasts, often occurring after soft-tissue trauma. Rarely, desmoid tumours can occur following operative intervention, including spine surgery. In this case report, we describe the first reported case of desmoid tumour following scoliosis corrective surgery in an adolescent.
