Abstract

Solitary fibrous tumours are rare mesenchymal tumours which mostly arise from pleura. Such tumours occurring in the mesocolon are exceptionally rare. A 35-year-old man was referred to the general surgery department with a painless and nonpalpable mass in the right quadrant of the abdomen, which was detected incidentally on magnetic resonance imaging. The patient had no symptoms and the physical examination revealed no findings. The patient underwent surgical resection and excisional biopsy results revealed an infra-abdominal solitary fibrous tumour originating from the ascending mesocolon. He was discharged two days after surgery and remained disease-free at the end of the two-month follow-up period.
