Abstract:

Mesenteric Fibromatosis (MF) is a rare fibroid tumor in the abdomen that often has no symptoms. It is frequently misdiagnosed as tumor recurrence or lymph node metastasis, making diagnosis and treatment challenging. Surgical excision is the preferred treatment, but medical therapy may be considered in certain cases. Despite limited research on this condition, we present three cases of MF in male patients who underwent colectomy. They had "para-anastomotic soft tissue density nodules with increased metabolism" on PET-CT scans, but were asymptomatic. Two patients had successful surgical treatment and were diagnosed with fibromatosis. The third patient was monitored and remained asymptomatic. The objective of this article is to offer up-to-date insights on mesenteric fibromatosis, share our experience with these three cases, and conduct a comprehensive review of existing literature to minimize misdiagnosis, and establish suitable treatment plans.
