Desmoid fibromatosis presenting as lateral hip pain in an outpatient physical therapy clinic: A case report

CONCLUSION: This case demonstrates a thorough differential diagnostic process leading to medical imaging referral in a patient with a non-musculoskeletal source of pain. Physical therapists must be diligent in their differential diagnostic process to ensure appropriateness of their treatments or the need for referral.PMID:34823424 | DOI:10.1080/09593985.2021.2008566

Desmoid tumor is a rare disease, which is histologically characterized by local invasion, monoclonality, and fibroblast proliferation; and clinically characterized by a variable and often unpredictable course. The treatment of desmoid tumor is mainly surgical resection, but the recurrence rate is high. In recent years, a variety of treatment methods, including endocrine therapy, surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, targeted drugs, interferon and more, have been used and achieved certain curative effects. In addition, in view of the inertia characteristics of desmoid tumor, observation...

Nagoya J Med Sci. 2021 Nov;83(4):673-681. doi: 10.18999/nagjms.83.4.673.ABSTRACTThe efficacy and safety of cyclooxygenase 2 (COX2) inhibitors for the treatment of desmoid-type fibromatosis (DF) are unclear. Therefore, we systematically reviewed related literature to assess the efficacy and safety of COX2 inhibitors for DF treatment. We searched pertinent literature between January 1999 and August 2017 to identify relevant studies using the keywords "Fibromatosis, aggressive" and "Cyclooxygenase inhibitors." Thereafter, we screened and determined the quality of the studies using the Grading of Recommenda...
