Abstract

The authors report the case of an adult female patient who developed a paraspinous thoracic fibromatosis (desmoid tumor) after undergoing resection of an intraspinal thoracic meningioma that was complicated by postoperative wound infection. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of such a tumor occurring after resection of a spinal meningioma. Awareness of the development of postoperative fibromatosis and recognition of its association with wound sepsis is important. Although rare, this distinctive lesion should be considered in the differential diagnosis of the apparent rapid regrowth of otherwise indolent lesions including meningioma.
