Gardner's syndrome (GS) is complicated by abdominal desmoid tumors in approximately 8% of cases. We describe two cases of ureteral obstruction and fistulization due to rapidly enlarging desmoid tumors. Initial management consisted of placement of ureteral stents to provide urine drainage from the kidney as well as from the collection in the cavities within the desmoid tumors.
