Solitary Calcifying Fibrous Adenoma of Small Bowel Mesentery - A Rare Case Report

Brinda Panchal | Pawan Tiwari [3] | Milan Patel | Abhishek Yadav [3] | Madhu Tiwari [2]

Abstract: Solitary fibrous tumours are rare mesenchymal tumours that typically arise from the pleura and rarely originate from the mesentery. We herein report a case involving a 24 - year - old patient who presented with pain in right iliac fossa, diagnosed as a case of acute appendicitis. Patient underwent an emergency open appendectomy. This mass was found incidentally during an exploration for Meckel?s diverticulum as a routine protocol during appendectomy which was resected. The biopsy of the mass revealed that it was a solitary calcifying fibrous tumour originating from the mesentery of the small intestine. The patient was discharged 5 days after surgery and had an uneventful post - operative stay.
