Open surgical resection is the mainstay treatment forÂ desmoidÂ tumors. Laparoscopic resection is rarely used and not well described in the literature. We report a case of a single, 35-year-old woman who presented with palpable abdominal wallÂ desmoidÂ tumor. The patient had had laparoscopic cholecystectomy 2 years earlier, and the tumor was at the insertion site of the right upper quadrant trocar.Â The patient underwent successful laparoscopic resection of the tumor. This report aimed to promote laparoscopic resection of abdominal wallÂ desmoidÂ tumors, whenever feasible, and describe the laparoscopic technique.
