Abstract


Gardner syndrome is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by the presence of colonic polyposis, osteomas and soft tissue tumors.

CT-staging showed multiple locations of desmoid tumors and osteomas, with final diagnosis of Gardner syndrome. The follow-up CT, after surgery and chemotherapy, showed a relapse of the lesions with hydronephrosis due to ureteral compression.
