Abstract

Retroperitoneal fibromatosis (RPF) is extremely rare. It usually occurs after previous abdominal surgery or trauma. The diagnosis and treatment modality for retroperitoneal fibromatosisis is a challenging issue because of its rarity and late presentation. It occurs in close relationship with vital structures like vessel, ureter and other structures in the retroperitoneum space. We report a case of RPF presenting as a mass in left iliac fossa, encasing the left common iliac vessel with symptoms of arterial occlusion, in a young girl with no significant medical, surgical or trauma history. Excision with aortofemoral bypass is the best way to treat such patient.
