Abstract

A 47-year-old man visited the genitourinary outpatient department complaining of difficulty with urination and defecation for several weeks. A pelvic tumor was found incidentally in abdominal sonography. Further study using abdominal computed tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) demonstrated a large heterogenous mass with central necrosis over the pelvic cavity that was compressing the bladder and prostate anteriorly. Exploratory laparostomy with removal of the pelvic tumor was performed without complications. Pathology examination revealed a solitary malignant fibrous tumor with dedifferentiation at intermediate risk. The patient received adjuvant radiation therapy postoperatively without any evident complication or recurrence at 6-month follow-up.
