LOPEZ PENZA, Patricia; PEREIRA, María Noel; COSTA PAZ, Carlos  and  OREGGIA CARRAU, María. Sporadic mesenteric fibromatosis. A case report. Literature review. Rev. Méd. Urug. [online]. 2022, vol.38, n.2, e702.  Epub June 01, 2022. ISSN 0303-3295.

Mesenteric fibromatosis is a deep sub-type of desmoid tumors consisting of a benign tumor of fibroblastic origin which is locally aggressive given its tendency to infiltrate adjacent tissues. They are unusual and sporadic, and may be associated to Gardner’s Syndrome. Complete resection is the treatment of choice, avoiding local recurrence.

The study reports the clinical case of a patient with intra-abdominal sporadic mesenteric fibromatosis, well circumscribed that appeared to be a pelvic mass in MR imaging.

Keywords : Desmoid tumor; Pelvic tumor; Intestinal fibromatosis; Pelvic mass; Intestine, small.
