PURPOSE To characterize the imaging features of desmoplastic small round cell tumor of the abdomen and correlate them with the histopathologic findings. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eleven of 14 patients with desmoplastic small round cell tumor had primary abdominal involvement. In nine of these patients (mean age, 20 years), results of imaging studies (computed tomography in nine patients, ultrasonography [US] in three) and histopathologic specimens were retrospectively analyzed. RESULTS The… CONTINUE READING
