Abstract

Mesenteric fibromatosis is a rare benign disease characterized by proliferating fibrous tissue in the bowel mesentery. We report a case of aggressive mesenteric fibromatosis with ureteral stenosis arising in a 46-year-old woman who suffered from intermittent right abdominal pain. Computed tomography revealed a right retroperitoneal mass with right ureteral stenosis at the level of the right common iliac vessel. The mass was excised with resection of the affected segment of the ileum, ascending colon, and ureter, and end-to-end ureter anastomosis was performed. Pathological examination confirmed mesenteric fibromatosis.
