5 - Sporadic mesenteric fibromatosis: a single center experience
Halil İbrahim Taşcı, Murat Çakır, Mustafa Şentürk
  Objective: Our aim with this study is to present the surgical approach of our clinic, the characteristics of the tumor, clinical presentation and long-term follow-up results with the literature in the cases of spontaneous mesenteric fibromatosis.

Material and Methods: The data collected from 8 cases of patients, who had underwent surgery because of sporadic mesenteric fibromatosis at Necmettin Erbakan University Medical School’s Department of General Surgery between January 2005 and December 2014, were retrospectively evaluated.

Results: The mean age of the patients was 46.7±19.9. Four (50%) of the patients were taken into emergency surgery having been diagnosed with ileus, 2 (25%) patients were ascertained to have mesenteric mass upon complaints of obscure abdominal pain, 1 (12.5%) patient underwent surgery on the detection of a mass in the meso of the small intestines during a surgical procedure performed by urologists because of a benign cause and in 1 (12.5%) patient’s case, the pathology results of the piece, which was removed after a surgical procedure performed because of a mass that might have been originated from the distal pancreas, was reported to be mesenteric fibromatosis. Only 1 (12.5%) patient had recurrence and necessitated re-operation following an average of 33.5±34.5 months of follow-up.

Conclusion: The fundamental principle in the treatment of this clinically aggressive tumor with a high recurrence rate, although it has the pathological characteristics of a benign tumor, is wide surgical resection.
