We present a mesenteric desmoid tumor in a man without associated diseases. Characteristics of this tumor are reviewed and the need to perform total exeresis of the mass for diagnosis is emphasized. Although surgery is the treatment of choice, alternative treatments are recommended when surgery cannot be performed, has been incomplete, or in cases of repeated recurrence.
