Calcifying Fibrous Tumor of the Small Bowel Mesentery in a 27-Year Old Male Patient - Case Report

Title variants
Languages of publication
Calcifying fibrous tumor is a rare disease entity, usually concerning the soft tissues of the limbs, neck, trunk, or scrotum. Cases of the above-mentioned pathology have also been reported considering the pleural and peritoneal cavity, and small bowel mesentery. The essence of the disease, whose etiology and pathogenesis remains unclear, is the fibrous tissue infiltration and diffuse inflammation with focal calcifications. The study presented a case of a 27-year old male patient subjected to surgical intervention, due to an abdominal cavity tumor. The tumor was radically removed, and its character and definitive diagnosis were established postoperatively. After a seven-year follow-up period, recurrence was not observed.
