Abstract

Intra-abdominal fibromatosis is a rare benign tumor which can pose challenges in its management because of its local aggressive invasion and propensity for high recurrence. Here we report the case of a young woman who presented with a large intra-abdominal tumor with bilateral ureteric compression. This case highlights the risks of surgical intervention, the limitations of radiotherapy and subsequent complications that can develop over the years in such patients.
