Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Desmoid Fibromatosis
Participants will have a clinical diagnosis of desmoid fibromatosis, either new or newly recurrent
Diagnostic Test: Cross-sectional imaging
MRI with gadolinium contrast will be the imaging modality of choice. In patients with contraindications to MRI who instead undergo baseline evaluation by CT scan, tumor evaluation will be by serial CT scans with IV contrast throughout the study period.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression free survival [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    The primary objective of this study is to estimate progression-free survival at 12 months, with the events defined by progression via radiographic criteria (RECIST 1.1).

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population
In most cases, patients will be identified by primary care providers in sarcoma medical and surgical oncology clinics.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Clinical diagnosis of desmoid fibromatosis, either new or newly recurrent. Both patients with sporadic and FAP-associated disease will be eligible for inclusion. Patients with clinical diagnosis of desmoid (as assessed by MSK physician) but without pathologic diagnosis may be enrolled on the study to facilitate acquisition of appropriately protocoled baseline scans and allow for biospecimen collection; these patients will be replaced for purposes of analysis if pathology does not confirm clinical diagnosis.
  • At least 18 years of age.
  • Able to undergo cross-sectional imaging by either MRI or CT with intravenous contrast
  • Disease detectable on cross-sectional imaging with target lesion measuring >/= 1 cm
  • Eligible for management by active observation as assessed by primary MSK care provider
  • Willing and able to sign an informed consent document

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Symptomatic desmoid fibromatosis requiring narcotic pain control, resulting in intestinal fistulization, or requiring inpatient admission during the 3 months prior to enrollment
  • Patients with intraabdominal desmoids greater than 7cm in diameter or localized within 1cm of the central mesenteric vessels and those with tumors in the head and neck
  • KPS performance status </= 70 if performance status is limited due to tumor. Patients with low KPS performance status related to co-morbidities but without symptoms related to the tumor will be eligible for enrollment.
  • Age less than 18 years old
  • Strict contraindication for both cross-sectional MRI and CT imaging with intravenous contrast (e.g., as per standard institutional protocols regarding renal insufficiency or MRI incompatible implanted devices; patients requiring pre-medication to prevent contrast reactions will be eligible for study)
  • Unable to grant reliable informed consent
  • Ongoing systemic treatment for desmoid fibromatosis
