Case report of four different primary mesenteric neoplasms and review of literature

Introduction: It is rare for primary tumors to arise from the mesentery.Lymphangiomas appear as congenital malformations of the lymphatic system or benign neoplasms as a large,thin-walled,often multilocular cyst.Mesenteric infiltration is common and during surgical treatment,adjustment of structures such as the bowel and resection of the spleen may be required.Cystic mesotheliomas are rare,benign tumors that originate from the peritoneal mesothelium and are more common in women.Mesenteric cysts are mostly benign and rare intra-abdominal tumors,and can be seen as occupying a large cyst.Malignant fibrous histiocytoma is a rare pleomorphic sarcoma that is more commonly encountered in men.After the extremities,the second most common areas to be affected are the retroperitoneum and peritoneal cavity.Case Presentation: We encountered four cases of different primary mesenteric neoplasms that were operated at the Gazi Yasargil teaching and research hospital,department of general surgery,Diyarbakir,Turkey,between 2013 and 2014.We reviewed these primary mesenteric neoplasms and compared them with previous literature.Conclusions: Primary mesenteric tumors are rare and mostly benign tumors.Complete surgical excision is necessary for all tumors and follow-up is necessary after surgery for malignant fibrous histiocytoma due to recurrence.© 2016,Iranian Red Crescent Medical Journal.
