AbstractA 58-year old male presented with a hard lump in lower abdomen extending into pelvis. Clinical examination and computed tomography scan revealed pelvic retroperitoneal mass. Patient underwent exploratory laparotomy - revealing a well encapsulated retroperitoneal mass extending up to coccyx, posterior to the urinary bladder. It had displaced the recto-sigmoid colon and urinary bladder to the right. Histopathological findings revealed a neurofibroma. Pelvic neurofibromas are known to arise from certain pelvic organ. However, present case ruled out any organ involvement both on imaging and intraoperatively. This shows that these tumors can arise de novo also. A brief case report and review of literature is presented.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
