Abstract

A 72-year-old patient developed a mass in the iliac fossa six months after implantation of a Dacron Bifurcation Graft. At first, it was thought to be a false aneurysm but after exploratory surgery it proved to be a solid mass. The histological examination showed that the cause was a desmoid tumour. After reconstruction by an extraanatomical bypass and tumour resection including the vascular graft, the patient remained without relapse for eighteen months. Tumour growth with an alloplastic vascular graft is rare. The treatment of choice is the surgical removal of the tumour including the parts of the graft involved.
