Radiol Case Rep
Pancreas is an exceptionally rare location for desmoid tumors. There are very few case reports of pancreatic fibromatosis in the English radiology literature. We present a case of a 45-year-old male with a mixed solid and cystic desmoid tumor of the pancreas which was surgically resected and was followed by recurrence in the mesentery. This will be the first case report of pancreatic desmoid with documented recurrence of fibromatosis in the mesentery which was also surgically resected and confirmed on pathology. In this case report, we discuss this entity's radiological findings with pathology correlation, clinical findings and management along with literature review.
