Background: Germline mutations of the APC tumour suppressor gene on chromosome 5q22 are responsible for familial adeno- matous polyposis (FAP). Desmoid tumours are poorly under- stood, locally invasive, non-metastasizing neoplasms that occur in about 10 per cent of patients with FAP. The natural history of desmoids was investigated by documenting prospectively the prevalence and progression of possible precursor lesions, and comparing the somatic genetics of these with established desmoid tumours.
