Desmoid tumour (DT) is an unusual, benign tumour, more frequently observed in patients with familial polyposis and pregnant females. It usually presents as a single mass lesion, more frequently showing a compressive rather than an infiltrative growth pattern. We report a case of a 70-year-old male presenting with a multifocal, bilateral infiltrative DT of the perirenal tissue, with involvement of the choledochus wall.

The patient was partly treated with tamoxifen and docetaxel, but both therapies were discontinued in accordance with the patient’s decision owing to mild toxicity; however, a CT examination performed 3 months later showed an unexpected remarkable reduction of the tumour at all sites. At 1 year follow-up, new pathologic tissue was visible surrounding the right renal pelvis and the calices.
