Extra-abdominal desmoid arising from a capsule around a silicone breast implant.


Musculo-aponeurotic fibromatosis is an extremely rare lesion in the breast, only 16 previous cases having been reported. The unilateral tumor in our patient occurred after subcutaneous mastectomy and bilateral placement of implants. The histological evidence suggests that this tumor arose from the capsule surrounding one of the implants.
