Primary mesenteric fibromatosis is a rare, histologically benign, pathology which is characterized by fibrous proliferation in the mesentery and made more serious by biological malignancy as it has a high inclination towards involving the visceral abdominal structures in its growth. While the cases reported in the literature describe the attempts to cure and reduce the tumor growth, this report describes the clinical, ultrasonographic and tomographic features during the natural growth rate of a case of inoperable primary mesenteric fibromatosis during a 20 month follow-up.

Abstract

Primary mesenteric fibromatosis is a rare, histologically benign, pathology which is characterized by fibrous proliferation in the mesentery and made more serious by biological malignancy as it has a high inclination towards involving the visceral abdominal structures in its growth. While the cases reported in the literature describe the attempts to cure and reduce the tumor growth, this report describes the clinical, ultrasonographic and tomographic features during the natural growth rate of a case of inoperable primary mesenteric fibromatosis during a 20 month follow-up.
